 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.

 1                           [Trial Chamber and Registrar confer]

 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

 4     witness.

 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

23     afternoon.

24             Could I hear from the parties whether a schedule sitting 26th

25     afternoon, 27th morning, 28th Thursday afternoon, and 29th Friday in the

Page 8038

 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

 4     health.

 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

16     week.

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.
