2 [Closed session]
12 Pages 10728-10838 – redacted – closed session
1 would mean at 7 days, three orders, would make 21. Would that be correct?
2 A. Yes, you may call it correct.
3 JUDGE ORIE: Yes, thank you very much for your answer.
4 Yes, Mr. Piletta-Zanin.
5 MR. PILETTA-ZANIN: [Interpretation] There is something that I find
6 important. This witness himself said that he didn't consider Sarajevo to
7 be under siege and he wanted to continue and I think he should be allowed
8 to do so.
9 [Trial Chamber confers]
10 JUDGE ORIE: If you would briefly explain in one or two lines why
11 you would consider Sarajevo not under siege.
12 A. Yes, Mr. President, I will try to be very short. "Under siege"
13 for me means surrounded. Circuit closed. That was not the case in
15 JUDGE ORIE: That is a clear answer. You have answered, during
16 three long days, all the questions of the parties and of the Bench, four
17 even, thank you very much for coming to The Hague and I wish you a safe
18 trip home again.
19 THE WITNESS: Thank you, Mr. President.
20 JUDGE ORIE: Would Mr. Usher escort the witness out of the
22 [The witness withdrew]
23 JUDGE ORIE: Could we turn in open session again before we close.
24 [Open session]
25 JUDGE ORIE: We had no time to discuss anything on 92 bis, but
1 could I ask the Prosecution to indicate especially as far as the
2 authentication witnesses are concerned, to indicate clearly what documents
3 are in these piles of documents that were tendered and whether they were
4 admitted or not and perhaps also to consider whether there would be any
5 need to ask for 92 bis statements to be admitted into evidence if
6 documents are admitted and if the Chamber did not ask for any
7 authentication or if it is not challenged.
8 MR. IERACE: Until you added that last comment, Mr. President, my
9 attitude have been that because of challenges that were made to the
10 documents that were tendered it was to include the 92 bis authentication
11 as well --
12 JUDGE ORIE: But we would like to know exactly what documents they
13 are about. So this is not an opening of the debate on 92 bis, but just in
14 order to give the Prosecution some time -- some homework for the weekend.
15 We will adjourn until next Monday, 9.00, same courtroom. And I
16 thank especially the interpreters for their patience and their flexibility
17 and cooperation on this late Friday evening and the same, of course, is
18 true for the technical booth.
19 --- Whereupon the hearing adjourned at
20 7.12 p.m., to be reconvened on Monday,
21 the 1st day of July, 2002, at 9.00 a.m.
