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

Well, with respect, your Honour, these are not delaying tactics. And I must make it clear that we are here acting on the written direct instructions of Mr Taylor. He has instructed us that he is not prepared for us to file a final brief until such time as these outstanding matters have been dealt with. And I repeat: They are legitimate matters which impact on the contents of our final brief, and in our submission as a matter of principle, no final, stressing and underlining that word, brief can be submitted until all outstanding matters are finalised. And that is our position.
