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

Your Honour, on that last point can I just make this suggestion again hopefully helpfully. Mr Taylor having indicated his willingness to attend court tomorrow despite the continuation of this regime, we are anxious that we don't waste time. If he is willing to subject himself to those restraints and come to court, we're anxious that we do use the available time.

Now there is uncertainty as to how quickly Mr Munyard will recover, so can I suggest that in light of my learned friend's comment that the next witness be made available tomorrow to be called in-chief if necessary so that we can make use of the available time. I don't know whether that poses logistical difficulties for the Prosecution, but I'm merely anxious in making this suggestion that we make best use of the time available.
