     1                                      Friday, 26th April 1996.
     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,
    11        please?
    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
    21        relate?
    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
    29        journalist.
    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
    56        statement.
    58   MR. JUSTICE BELL:  I have something which is "Attention Dave
    59        Morris, London Greenpeace".
