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

I have no difficulty with the practice and to be quite frank I was unaware of the nature of the practice, in particular that in this instance, where we are showing a DVD to the whole courtroom, that the Prosecution really require to have seen it beforehand. I find that difficult to comprehend, but of course in future where we are seeking to put a document before the Court, we will endeavour to ensure that the Prosecution are given notice of that document. I apologise to my learned friend if the Prosecution were offended by our failure in this particular instance.

Your Honour, can I rise, hopefully helpfully, to mention that I am reminded by my learned friend Mr Anyah that there was a court trial management meeting at which it was agreed that exhibits would be provided to the other side on the morning - perhaps it might be best if Mr Anyah dealt with this because he was present at that meeting.
