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

We have considered the submissions of counsel. We accept the suggestion in principle. However, there must be evidence of: (1) the witness's knowledge of the person and (2) his concerns for security, et cetera, to determine if a pseudonym can be allowed by the Court. Therefore, we will hear this is private session to determine if it is appropriate that a number rather than a reference to the person by name is adduced in the course of evidence. So if the witness can be brought in, I will remind him of his oath and we will go into private session and deal with that matter first, Mr Bangura, Mr Griffiths. Counsel, I should remark that this was a procedure that we have adopted in the past.
