After being delayed for almost a month, the Lubanga trial resumed on Monday, October 25, 2010 with the testimony of a field liaison for the Court’s Office of the Prosecutor. When Defense attorney Catherine Mabille questioned whether the witness had been informed by MONUC that Mr. X (an intermediary for the Court) had made a complaint against the ICC the witness, testifying from the DRC with distorted video and audio, stated, “We had heard that Mr. X had approached MONUC so as to complain,” the witness replied. He added, “Mr. X had made complaints… about the way the ICC was operating and in particular what he considered certain dysfunctions.” Further details were given in a closed session.
The next day, Judge Adrian Fulford stated that since witnesses who were scheduled to testify this week were not ready to do so, the trial would be delayed until the following week.
