NOTING that this statement was immediately disclosed to the Defence;

CONSIDERING that, in the meantime, the Prosecution is expected to respond to the material already submitted by Zigic within the time frame set by the Scheduling Order of 22 April 2003;

CONSIDERING that good cause has not been shown;

HEREBY DENIES the Prosecutionís Motion.
