Just one moment.

Sorry, Your Honour, this will, of course, also be subjected to some other procedure, but the accused person wants me to bring to the attention of the Court of his concern that he wants to be tried in Sierra Leone and nowhere else. Thank you, Your Honour. That is the concern he has in terms of the logistics, his possible witnesses and the fact that this is a domestically -based trial for him within the sub-region. To facilitate his family from Liberia to come to Sierra Leone, he thinks that the most appropriate venue for him if the trial is to go on is in Sierra Leone. He raises that before the Court. Just one more minute. Let me confer with the accused person.
