Defense objects to introduction of the four photographs of the airplane registered to Leonid Minin. Defense: We don’t know who took the pictures – an anonymous source.
Prosecution: The source of the photos was confidential, not anonymous. The photos came from a crew member. The crew member used the plane. There are direct ties between Minin and the accused in this case, Charles Taylor. The plane was used to transport weapons – weapons that we will subsequently show went to Sierra Leone.
Sebutinde: It is the majority view of the chamber that the photos are relevant, and issues of origin and authenticity go to the weight to be attached to the evidence.
The four photographs are now being entered into evidence.
