2 [Open session]
3 [The accused entered court]
4 --- Upon commencing at 2.20 p.m.
5 JUDGE ORIE: Good afternoon to everyone.
6 Madam Registrar, would you please call the case.
7 THE REGISTRAR: Good afternoon, Your Honours. Good afternoon,
8 everyone in and around the courtroom. This is case number IT-03-69-T,
9 the Prosecutor versus Jovica Stanisic and Franko Simatovic.
10 JUDGE ORIE: Thank you, Madam Registrar.
11 I did not hear of any procedural issues to be raised at this
12 moment, which means - and it's a pity for those who are in the public
13 gallery following our proceedings - that we have to move into closed
14 session because we'll hear the remainder of the evidence of the present
15 witness in closed session.
16 [Closed session]
11 Pages 7963-8035 redacted. Closed session.

2 JUDGE ORIE: Madam Registrar would like to put a correction on
3 the record in relation to the last photograph, the still marked by the
5 THE REGISTRAR: Last exhibit previously marked as P1566 should be
6 P1573, Your Honours.
7 JUDGE ORIE: That's on the record. Thank you, Madam Registrar.
8 There's one issue remaining, that is, we'll not sit tomorrow.
9 We'll also not sit next week. We'll not sit on the 25th of October,
10 which is a UN holiday. I would like to briefly discuss with you the days
11 after that, that is, 26th, 27th, 28th, and 29th of October. As matters
12 stand at present and also keeping in mind the concerns you had,
13 Mr. Groome, also keeping in mind the condition of Mr. Stanisic, on the
14 26th we are scheduled to sit in the afternoon. On the 27th we are
15 scheduled to sit in the afternoon, but for co-ordination purposes the
16 Chamber is intending to sit on that morning. The 28th we are sitting in
17 the afternoon, that's Thursday. And we could also sit and I think I
18 indicated that already earlier, that we might want to sit for four days
19 that week -- on the 29th we could sit in the afternoon. Now, there is a
20 possibility that since Friday afternoon is not the most popular day of
21 the week, that there may still be an opening to move that to Friday
22 morning. But as matters stand at this moment we could only sit on Friday
24 Could I hear from the parties whether a schedule sitting 26th
25 afternoon, 27th morning, 28th Thursday afternoon, and 29th Friday in the
1 afternoon, whether that would meet any objections or any problems.
2 MR. GROOME: No objection from the Prosecution.
3 MR. JORDASH: No objection, obviously subject to Mr. Stanisic's
5 JUDGE ORIE: Yes.
6 MR. BAKRAC: [Interpretation] We have no objection, Your Honour.
7 JUDGE ORIE: Yes.
8 Mr. Jordash, you raised Mr. Stanisic's health. You know that we
9 intended to move slowly to three and then four days. As far as the
10 medical reports are concerned, until now there seems not to be a firm
11 obstacle against sitting four days a week. Not to say that we would
12 change that if there are special circumstances raised by Mr. Groome
13 matters to consider to sit in that week four days. We will -- it's most
14 likely that we will be able, especially in view of what -- the positions
15 taken by the parties, that we'll be able to follow that schedule for that
17 Then we adjourn and we'll not sit next week. We'll resume on
18 Tuesday, the 26th of October, quarter past 2.00 in the afternoon, as far
19 as matters stand now, in Courtroom I.
20 --- Whereupon the hearing adjourned at 6.41 p.m.
21 to be reconvened on Tuesday, the 26th day of
22 October, 2010, at 2.15 p.m.
