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

Your Honour, I'm grateful. Yes, we are. Your Honour, that witness is subject to protective measures. Those protective measures were initially granted by Trial Chamber I from the decision of 5 July 2004 in the case of Prosecutor v Sesay, Kallon and Gbao. Those measures were firstly a pseudonym; secondly a screen; and, thirdly, that any identifying information be sealed and not be part of the public records.

Your Honour, this is a witness who has testified twice before this Court previously: first in the case of Prosecutor v Fofana and Kondewa on 11 February 2005; and, secondly, in the case of Prosecutor v Brima, Kamara and Kanu before your Honours and that was on 27 June 2005. Your Honours, he testified subject to those protective measures on both of those occasions.
