3:08 Court briefly adjourns due to witness’s headache

2:33 (3:03 with the delay in video and audio): Court is back in session following the lunch break.

Prosecutor Shyamala Alagendra continues her examination of witness TF1-028:

Pros: We stopped when you were telling the court that the RUF group that came to Eddie Town had red headbands. But before we continue there, I would like to clarify some of the things you said this morning.

Wit: Right now I’m feeling pain in my head. I have a headache.

Judge Doherty: Do you need a Panadol or something?

Wit: Yes.

Judge Doherty: Speak to the WVS staff with you and explain what you need.

WVS officer: The witness says she would not like to proceed with her testimony. She’s sorry about it.

Judge Doherty: How long does she need?

WVS officer: She’s asking for 30 minutes.

Judge Sebutinde: During the lunch break, did you draw this headache to the attention of the people looking after you? Did you tell them?

Wit: When we were coming into the courtroom, that’s when I told her.

Judge Sebutinde: You realize we’re now going to waste some time when you could have used the lunch break to get some Panadol.

Wit: That is true.

Judge Doherty: We will take a break. I note the witness has asked for 30 minutes, but if the witness is ready before that, please inform us.

2:38 (3:08 with the delay in video and audio): Court adjourns.
