13:41 President Cerdini asks Mme Vogel, née Esssner, to speak about the deportation of her parents by Nazi collaborator Paul Touvier.
14:26 Lawyer Welzer requests the Court to decide on whether it can continue to be permitted for Barbie to be absent.
14:46 Lawyer Du Granut says the presence of Barbie at his own trial would be useful and neccessary, but the respect of the French legal tradition excludes the use of force.
14:50 The prosecuter suggests Barbie's appearance by force is not necessary. The court must avoid Barbie acting as a martyr.
