1 THE PRESIDENT: At the close of yesterday's sitting the situation was that Saint Vincent
2 and the Grenadines had completed their submission of evidence by witness. We shall now
3 listen to their submissions. Mr von Brevern?
5 MR VON BREVERN: Mr President, may I introduce a new member of the delegation of
6 Guinea, Mr André Saféla Leno, Judge of the Appeal Court of Guinea.
8 THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Maître Thiam?
10 MAITRE THIAM: Mr President, Members of the Tribunal, as I said to you yesterday, it is
11 a great honour for me to address you once more today. Although this is not my first
12 intervention before the Tribunal, I feel the weight of the burden which an advocate assumes
13 in front of this Court.
15 I must say to you, however, that the day before yesterday, as my learned friends,
16 representing Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and, as I am sure, the party of Guinea, I felt a
17 deep sense of sadness when we were only talking about Guinea and the inadmissible
18 practices which are current in certain administrations.
