Ms Hollis, I've heard your address concerning the submission of the Defence that time spent in exile in Calabar should be taken into account, the two years and several months. It's at paragraph 213 of the Defence brief. There are two matters that are raised in that Defence brief, one is drawing a parallel between the legal provisions of the United Kingdom Criminal Justice Act, and the other is a factual one, that the offer was related - I quote here from paragraph 214:

"... is directly related to the Special Court Indictment that had been unsealed ..."

In other words, there appears to be an emphasis on the Special Court's role. Could you comment on those two submissions.
