Your Honour, your reading of the materials and in particular the renewed Prosecution motion for protective measures dated 4 May 2004 and the judgment that followed the motion of the 5 July 2004 is, with respect, incorrect. In the renewed motion the Prosecution pointed - at paragraph 20 there was an application for all witnesses of fact or lay witnesses and the Prosecution requested various protective measures including that witnesses of fact, that is all witnesses, testify in Court using pseudonyms and from behind a screen that will shield them from the public view. Those two are the measures that are relevant for what is being argued today. Again --
