2 [Open session]
3 [The accused entered court]
4 --- Upon commencing at 9.05 a.m.
5 JUDGE MOLOTO: I see the Prosecution is in hibernation. Yes,
6 Ms. Richterova.
7 MS. RICHTEROVA: Good morning, Your Honours. The Prosecution
8 wants to call next witness. It is a protected witness, MM-018. He will
9 testify in closed session.
10 JUDGE MOLOTO: I beg your pardon.
11 Let the witness come through.
12 May the Chamber please move into closed session. Thank you.
13 [Closed session]
11 Pages 5328-5377 redacted. Private session.
14 [Open session]
15 THE REGISTRAR: We are in open session, Your Honours.
16 JUDGE MOLOTO: Thank you very much.
17 Yes, Mr. Whiting, you are on your feet.
18 MR. WHITING: Thank you, Your Honour. I didn't mean to take over,
19 but Ms. Richterova asked me to handle the next matter because she would
20 like to be excused so that -- and she asked me to ask Your Honours if she
21 may be excused from the further proceedings.
22 JUDGE MOLOTO: Thank you very much. I see she always asks you to
23 ask the Chamber if she may be excused. I wonder how much she -- she pays
24 you for that representation.
25 MR. WHITING: Not enough, Your Honour.
1 JUDGE MOLOTO: Ms. Richterova, you are excused.
2 MS. RICHTEROVA: Thank you, Your Honour.
3 JUDGE MOLOTO: Yes, Mr. Whiting.
4 MR. WHITING: Your Honour, we don't have another witness for
5 today, for this week. We estimated that the witnesses for this week would
6 take us to the end. We fell a little bit short, so our next witness will
7 not be available until Monday, I'm afraid.
8 We do have two small housekeeping matters to address with the
9 Court, if we could.
10 JUDGE MOLOTO: You may proceed.
11 MR. WHITING: The first is with respect, once again, to the books,
12 the three books. If you'll recall, Your Honour, the Court gave us with
13 respect to one of those three books, Exhibit 238, until today to make our
14 selection. We have done that. The selection is completed. The
15 translation has been completed. It was no small effort, I can say, and
16 I'd like to thank the interpreters in our office who worked very hard to
17 get that done. The only thing that has to be done is it has not yet been
18 uploaded into e-court. That I think can be accomplished today, both the
19 B/C/S pages that were selected and their accompanying translation.
20 What I think I would ask is if the Court could ask the registrar
21 to assign an exhibit number once it has been uploaded to e-court. Then
22 what we can do is simply deal directly with the registrar on that, get it
23 uploaded to e-court, tell the registrar what it is in e-court and the
24 number can then just be assigned and the process will be done with.
25 JUDGE MOLOTO: Registrar, will you please assign an exhibit number
1 to that exhibit once it has been uploaded in e-court and do that outside
3 THE REGISTRAR: Yes, Your Honour.
4 JUDGE MOLOTO: Thank you.
5 MR. WHITING: Your Honour, before I move to the next housekeeping
6 topic which is a separate matter, I do wonder if the Defence might be in a
7 position to address whether it has made its selections with respect to
8 these three books. Perhaps it's been done. I'm not clear on whether it's
9 been done and whether they have been assigned exhibit numbers and where we
10 stand on that.
11 JUDGE MOLOTO: Mr. Milovancevic, do you have anything to tell us
12 about your side of the story on the three exhibits?
13 MR. MILOVANCEVIC: [Interpretation] Yes, Your Honour.
14 We've obeyed by your instructions. At this moment, I don't know
15 whether we have those exhibits. Could we please leave this until Monday
16 as a technical issue that may be resolved at that time, since my learned
17 friend Mr. Sekulic is not with us today and he is much more familiar with
18 that. But undoubtedly we followed your instruction on all three books.
19 [Trial Chamber and registrar confer]
20 JUDGE MOLOTO: Registry advises me that it has been done. What
21 remains is to be uploaded on to e-court. So you more or less are at the
22 same level as the Prosecution on that one. Thank you very much.
23 Mr. Whiting, the next point.
24 MR. WHITING: Your Honour, the next point requires us to go into
25 private session.
1 JUDGE MOLOTO: Before you go into private session, can I deal with
2 a point -- the housekeeping point that doesn't need private session?
3 Just to remind the parties, or to let the parties know, rather,
4 that a Scheduling Order has been filed scheduling the case after the close
5 of the Prosecution case. I'm just mentioning this so that you may try --
6 you may try to access that today and familiarise yourselves with that
7 Scheduling Order because we are going to try to keep very strictly to that
8 Scheduling Order for the conduct of the case after the close of the
9 Prosecution case. So the sooner you get your hands on it, the better.
11 May the Chamber please move into private session.
12 [Private session]
11 Pages 5382-5383 redacted. Private session.
5 [Open session]
6 THE REGISTRAR: We are in open session.
7 JUDGE MOLOTO: Thank you very much.
8 Nothing to be dealt with now? Do you have anything outstanding,
9 Mr. Whiting?
10 MR. WHITING: I do not, Your Honour. Thank you.
11 JUDGE MOLOTO: Thank you very much.
12 Court adjourned then. We will reconvene on Monday, I guess it's
13 going to be at 2.00 -- quarter past 2.00.
14 MR. MILOVANCEVIC: [Interpretation] Your Honour.
15 JUDGE MOLOTO: [Previous translation continues] ...
16 MR. MILOVANCEVIC: [Interpretation] In which courtroom? This is
17 Courtroom III. How about next week, is it Courtroom II or Courtroom III?
18 JUDGE MOLOTO: It's going to be in Courtroom II. We were just
19 here today because, I suppose, because something is being done to
20 Courtroom II. So it's going to be Courtroom II, quarter past 2.00, on
22 Court adjourned.
23 --- Whereupon the hearing adjourned at 11.50 a.m.,
24 to be reconvened on Monday, the 12th day of
25 June, 2006, at 2.15 p.m.
