19             MR. GUY-SMITH:  Yes, Your Honour.  The witness who was going to

20     be called today, we anticipated testifying, Mr. Arsenovic, will not be

21     testifying, and as a result we have no witnesses for the day.  I tried to

22     inform the Chamber as well as the Prosecution of this at the earliest

23     practicable time to accommodate all on their schedule.  Our next

24     scheduled witness is Mr. Covilo.  He is scheduled for Thursday and he is

25     on track and on board.  So with that in mind --

 7     yearning to say something.
