The trial of former Liberian president Charles Taylor was adjourned for a second day in a row due to persistent technical problems with the courts hardware system, thus impeding the court’s ability to produce live notes of the transcripts inside the court room.
When court resumed this morning, presiding judge Richard Lussick informed all parties present that “the problems yesterday are still with us today.”
Proceedings in the trial were adjourned yesterday due to the same technical problems with the court’s live notes.
He said that the parties in court had agreed that the trial be adjourned for the day so as to give the technicians the opportunity to fix the problem. He, however, added that “the chamber is considering proceeding tomorrow using limited technology if this problem is not solved.”
The cross-examination of Mr. Taylor continues tomorrow.
