3 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Call Mr. Rose.
5 MR. MORRIS: Yes.
7 DAVID JACOB EDWARD ROSE, sworn
8 Examined by the Defendants
10 MS. STEEL: If you could give your full name to the court,
12 A. David Jacob Edward Rose.
14 Q. You live in London at present; is that right?
15 A. Yes.
17 Q. Could you give a little bit of history about yourself, your
18 position now and any details of any awards you have won?
20 MR. JUSTICE BELL: Is that necessary for what he is going to
23 MR. MORRIS: His credibility is important.
25 MR. RAMPTON: No, his credibility is not under attack.
27 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I do not know, I do not suppose anyone will
28 suggest Mr. Rose is other than a perfectly respectable
31 MR. RAMPTON: Can I say for the purpose of this case alone, I
32 accept Mr. Rose's statement in its entirety.
34 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I really only need to know about people's
35 background if they are put forward as an expert.
37 MS. STEEL: OK.
39 MR. JUSTICE BELL: If their credibility is attacked, then you
40 might want to re-examine about something but .....
42 MS. STEEL: OK. All right. (To the witness): If you could
43 get down from the bundles behind you -- I am not sure which
44 one it is in.
46 MR. JUSTICE BELL: It pale blue 1C on the top, Mr. Rose, you
47 see, with the "1C" on it. Thank you. Near the front of
48 divider G and then behind that, divider 1.
50 MS. STEEL: If I could say, I think that the wrong statement is
51 at the front because what happened was we originally served
52 the statement, the proof which is headed, the proof of
53 story Greenpeace -- which I think in the bundle is the
54 second page, but I might be wrong -- requested by Rose on
55 20th July 1993 at 16, 34, 58, and that is the actual real
58 MR. JUSTICE BELL: I have something which is "Attention Dave
59 Morris, London Greenpeace".
