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

I'd like to be clear about this situation, Mr Griffiths. You have stated that Mr Taylor, I quote, is not seeking to control the proceedings. But the instructions it appears to me that he has given you are tantamount to contempt of a court order, which was made on 22 October and the - you said about time to prepare, you've also mentioned time to prepare, and it was Mr Munyard on behalf of the Defence that submitted 14 January as time to prepare. So what you are, to my mind, saying is your instructions are in breach of an order.
