The first was Charlotte Ahmed, who testified that she had not been presented with any minutes of the 9th November executive meeting at subsequent meetings. Ian Fitzpatrick, who stated that he had known Mr Sheridan for many years and that, in his opinion the voice on the "McNeilage tape" is not that of Mr Sheridan and Phillip Stott who also told the court that he did not believe Mr Sheridan's voice was that heard on the tape.
Mr Sheridan was also asked by Lord Bracadale, the presiding judge, if he could give the jury an idea of how much longer his defence case would take. Mr Sheridan told the jury that he expected to be finished by Thursday or Friday of this week, weather permitting.
The court has now adjourned until tomorrow morning.
