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

Madam President, would it help if I made it clear that we don't require a witness's current address to be given in evidence in England unless it's relevant to one of the issues that the Court is to determine. In those circumstances I would adopt the practice of the English courts here, that unless the current address is of relevance to the issues the Court is deciding then there's no need for it to be given, and I've taken Mr Taylor's instructions on that and he's quite content for the witness's current address not to be disclosed to the public.
