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

May it please the Trial Chamber, thank you, your Honours. In compliance with your decision of 19 August 2008 the Registry has submitted before you a confidential four page report with a one page attachment which is also confidential which is a letter from the EBB, or the guarding and protecting service which comes under the Department of Justice of the Netherlands. They informed us of the reasons for the increase in the security level and we, on behalf of the Registry, have again pursued this at the next higher level which is the Department of Prisons or the DJI and as of Friday they have informed us that they are unable to cease the two practices to which Mr Taylor objects. We are waiting for something in writing to that effect.

We will continue our efforts to relieve these practices being put in place for Mr Taylor, but that is my report and the confidential report contains more details, your Honours. Thank you.
