In a 25 paged document released late yesterday evening, Dr. Bu-Buakei Jabbie, the lead counsel for detained Chief Hinga Norman has named H.E. President Kabbah as the very first witness who will be called upon to testify to the Special Court when the Defence Team opens their Defence on January 17th 2005.

 
His Excellency President Kabba: First in line

The Witness List which is made up of 77 witnesses also names former VP Demby, former American Ambassador, John Hirsch and former British High Commissioner Peter Penfold as other witnesses.

It also names the former UNDP Resident Representative to Sierra Leone as well as former ECOMOG Bosses Major General Victor Malu and Major General Abu Wan Mohamed.

The Witness List also names scores of former Kamajor and CDF fighters as witnesses who are going to testify on behalf of the detained Norman.

The 77th and last person on the witness list is journalist Kelvin Lewis, Managing Editor of the Awoko newspaper.

The document also mentions the complete list of exhibits that the Bu-Buakei Defence Team intends to present to the Special Court. From the brief description of some of these exhibits, it is not difficult to deduce that they could be classified as minutes of top secret meetings that were held by top government officials during the height of the prosecution of the war in 1999.

The document also makes mention of logistical constraints that the Defence Team of Hinga Norman and other indictees of the Special Court have been facing. Read Awareness Times tomorrow for more details of this document.
