Taylor’s Lead Counsel Indicates Additional Time Required to Prepare for Trial

According to a Reuters article, Taylor’s new lead counsel Courtenay Griffiths has “urged” the Court to again postpone the trial beyond the August 20 date on which it is currently set to resume.  Griffiths told Reuters in an interview that “[r]ealistically there is no prospect of this trial starting on Aug. 20” and “[q]uite plainly the time that we have been allowed would be inadequate to prepare a case of this magnitude.”
