10 [Open session]

11 JUDGE LIU: Yes. Now we are in open session.

12 Mr. Karnavas, could you please brief us about the witness

13 situation at this stage.

14 MR. KARNAVAS: Certainly, Your Honour. Certainly.

15 I suspect you're asking the situation as to why we don't have any

16 witnesses for later on today and tomorrow. Apparently, there was some

17 sort of a mix-up, and -- at least with one of the witnesses there has been

18 some documentation problems. But, but, in light of that -- in spite of

19 that, I should say, there's not going to be a problem as far as meeting

20 our targeted date. That's my expectation. I know that -- because some of

21 these witnesses were rather short. And there may be cause or reason, I

22 should say, to make some adjustments based on the evidence as it's coming

23 in.

15 Mr. Vasic is a rather more complicated witness. I'm sure that

16 there's going to be some cross-examination from Mr. Jokic's lawyers. I'm

17 sure the Prosecutor, at least from the indications that I have, from the

18 remarks in open court, is probably going to be questioning Mr. Vasic. And

19 I would say that I have the better part of a day and a half with

20 Mr. Vasic. And of course, I will be asking that he be declared a hostile

21 witness in every sense of the word. But more precisely, for the purposes

22 of conducting cross-examination, the gentleman obviously was extremely

23 reluctant in coming over here. And it took us close to two and a half

24 years to even arrange a meeting with him.

25 So that's the situation, Your Honours.

1 JUDGE LIU: Thank you.

2 Is there anything Mr. McCloskey would like to raise at this stage?

3 MR. McCLOSKEY: Yes, Your Honour. We may, if we could just go

4 into private session very briefly.

5 JUDGE LIU: Yes. We'll go to the private session, please.
