The transcripts of the trial of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia. More…

Mr President, I rose to make the appearances for the Prosecution because I would also like to make clear for the record a matter relating to the notice we gave to the Trial Chamber yesterday of the limited time that we had with witness TF1-197 and, as you recall, we indicated we had very limited time with him because of his illness and also because of limited availability of the Kono interpreters.

I would like to make very clear for the record that the availability of the Kono interpreters was limited simply because they were performing their duties in the interpretation booth. In all other instances the Kono interpreters, as with all interpreters in this case, have been very helpful to the Prosecution and I certainly in no way meant to imply that they had not been cooperative or helpful, and I just wanted to make that clarification for the record.
