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

Before I begin I have an application to make. During the short adjournment this morning I was provided with a 18 page autopsy report into the death of Sam Bockarie. It's a document which hitherto had not been served on the Defence and it is of some significance, given that your Honours might well conclude that at one level the high point of this witness's evidence is the evidence he gives as to the death of Sam Bockarie.

As a consequence, I would like an opportunity, having not had one, to peruse this document in some detail and noting the hour I wonder if your Honours would agree to adjourn at this point so that I can commence my cross-examination of this witness on Monday morning.
