He had little to say during the actual proceeding at one point -- the judge was speaking in apparently deference to the judge he stood up looked at the judge in the -- and was listening to what the judge had to say and then the judge told -- that it was not necessary for him to stand.
Everything taking place in the courtroom.
Being simultaneously translated and what is really killing about this Martha is that this defendant if the allegations are true.

June 2 quick questions David -- say about his demeanor and his appearances it's similar to what we see in this picture that we've been showing this morning.
And and he has a lawyer I asked him.
Yes he does have.
At least a three court appointed lawyers one of the issues that came out today was whether or not he had the resources to pay lawyers he said he did not and the judge said that did they would be provided at tax Payer expense and as the security.
It was intense as you would -- bad.
