Over the course of this 3-day court week, the Chamber heard a total of 12 witness testimonies, 3 oral and 9 written. The Chamber’s decision to read into the record written witness statements (or summaries of statements) continues to prove valuable to the overall expeditiousness of the proceedings. One concern raised by the International Co-Prosecutor concerning the reading of witness statements was that the Accused’s waiver of his right to summon witnesses in specific circumstances pursuant Internal Rule 84(1) had not been properly obtained. The Chamber promptly put the matter to rest, holding that the Accused had provided the requisite waiver at previous trial management meetings.
