1 THE PRESIDENT: Dr Plender, I take it that you will continue with your submissions today?
3 DR PLENDER: Yes, Mr President. First, it is my pleasure and honour to present to the
4 Tribunal the Honourable Carlyle Dougan, Queen's Counsel, High Commissioner to the Court of
5 St James and Agent for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in these proceedings. At the end of the

7 present the request made on behalf of the Applicant State for relief in this action.
9 THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. The Tribunal is pleased to welcome His Excellency, the
10 Agent. We look forward to hearing from him at the appropriate time.
12 DR PLENDER: Maître Thiam will now address the Tribunal on questions of evidence.
14 MAITRE THIAM: (Interpreted from French) Mr President, Honourable Judges of the
15 Tribunal, I shall be speaking to you about the testimony provided by Guinea. In doing so,
16 I should like to start by saying that the witnesses were not of the same quality and credibility as
17 the witnesses for the Applicant State.
