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

Thank you, Mr Munyard. My learned colleagues and I have consulted on the two issues. We will allow Mr Munyard some time to - a short adjournment to speak to his client and we will rise in due course.

On the substitution of Mr Bangura, we would observe that professional courtesy should have determined that Ms Alagendra informed us of this herself if she was aware of the possibility of this happening. If she was aware on Wednesday, according to Mr Munyard she was informed, we would have expected that professional courtesy directly to the Bench. However, with that caveat we have no objection to the substitution of Mr Bangura for the continuation of the cross-examination and re-examination, if any should arise.

We will now adjourn briefly and we will ask counsel to inform us when they are ready to proceed.
