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

Madam President, can I ask for one matter of clarification? I understand now we will proceed to hear the evidence of this witness and she will be heard no doubt in full. It appears to us that this is a matter of some considerable weight and I note, looking at some of the jurisprudence that I haven't put before the Court, that it is quite common in these international tribunals on an issue such as this for written submissions to be made to the Court once - on these objections once the evidence is concluded and I wonder if that is a course that you want to indicate would be appropriate? You may not want to indicate it now, but if you did then it would certainly be helpful for all of us if that is something that you would wish to receive in due course.
