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

Your Honours, my recollection of the discussion surrounding this issue that we had on 28 November during the trial management meeting was that it was agreed that the Witness and Victims Support Section staff members would not sit in the courtroom all the time as is the practice in Freetown, but where a witness is fragile or vulnerable and requires support a member of the Witness and Victims Support Section would sit at the Registry Bench, which is on the left-hand side of the Bench, and support the victim. Thank you. And the parties - your Honour, the Defence and the Prosecution all agreed to this procedure and I haven't received anything contrary to that. Thank you.
