6172 Wednesday, 6 October 2010
[The accused entered court]
--- Upon commencing at 2.17 p.m.
JUDGE FLUEGGE: Good afternoon to everybody in the courtroom. Firstly, the Registrar would like to give an information for the record.
THE REGISTRAR: The document referred to yesterday as 65 ter 3043E was put on the record as Prosecution Exhibit P00824. This document should read P00848 as the official Prosecution exhibit number.
JUDGE FLUEGGE: Thank you very much for that. Are there any procedural matters before the witness comes in?
MR. VANDERPUYE: Thank you, Mr. President. Good afternoon to you and Your Honours. Good afternoon, everyone.
There is one issue, Mr. President, and I wanted to inform the Court that based upon the time estimates that we've received from the Defence concerning the upcoming witnesses, the Prosecution has released the witness Egbers who was scheduled otherwise to testify at the end of this week. We won't be sitting next week, and it seems very unlikely -- well, it's almost certain that he won't -- we won't get to him this week. There are two other witnesses, Witness Stanisic and Witness Milosevic, who are here and who are prepared to testify, and we obviously have to finish with this witness before we get to him, but we're hoping that we'll be able to do that because we won't be sitting next week as well.
JUDGE FLUEGGE: Indeed, this is a good proposal to release one witness, and we also do our very best to be in the position to finish 6173 with the remaining witnesses this week. The reason given by Mr. Vanderpuye are indeed the best reasons for that. If there is nothing further, we should go into closed session, and the witness should be brought in. We again will hear a witness in closed session.

THE REGISTRAR: We are in open session, Your Honour.
JUDGE FLUEGGE: We have completed the hearing in closed session and have to adjourn now during night-time. We will resume tomorrow 6276 morning at 9.00 in Courtroom I. We were rescheduled to Courtroom I, because there's a need for an extended sitting tomorrow in this courtroom.
--- Whereupon the hearing adjourned at 7.20 p.m., to be reconvened on Thursday, the 7th day
of October, 2010, at 9.00 a.m.
