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

Thank you, Madam President. Madam President, before we commence, just two brief observations with leave of your Honours. The first is that your Honours have outlined how we should proceed vis-à-vis the submissions made yesterday, but in listening to the submissions of the Prosecution this morning invariably some of the remarks made to -- made in response to our submissions yesterday have intertwined with our preparations for presentations to be made today, and we do not want it to appear when we deal with those issues that matters we would ordinarily have had to deal with in reply we are dealing with in response. The issues are now juxtaposed and intertwined, to a large extent. I can give you a quick example about the hearsay issue, for example. So we seek your indulgence in that respect.
