OUGADOUGOU, BURKINA FASO (MAY 4, 2017) (REUTERS) **** WARNING CONTAINS FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY **** VARIOUS OF JUDGES INSIDE COURT ROOM CLOSE ON COURT CLERK VARIOUS OF ACCUSED MINISTERS FROM FORMER PRESIDENT BLAISE COMPAORE'S GOVERNMENT CLOSE OF GENERAL DJIBRIL BASSOLE SIGN READING, (French): "WITNESS" VARIOUS OF MEMBERS OF PUBLIC SITTING IN COURT WATCHING TRIAL SIGN READING, (French): "COURT ROOM 2" LAWYERS TALKING LAWYER FOR DEFENCE OF BLAISE COMPAORE, PIERRE OLIVIER WALKING (SOUNDBITE) (French) LAWYER FOR BLAISE COMPAORE, PIERRE OLIVIER, SAYING: "As you can see there are problems with regards to a judge who belongs to the administrative tribunal and to the state counsel and not to judicial jurisdiction. Administrative tribunal, counsel of state, that's a judge who is not independent, who is a government judge and it is maybe by design that she (judge Elizabeth Bado) was chosen to form this high jurisdiction. In any case after five minutes I had to take off my lawyer's robe. I did not take it off, its the high court that ripped off my robe and you understand how symbolic this is. This is no longer a fair trial and even if the others were judges and sentenced, this sentence would be null and void within the law and in the eyes of international standards that oversee fair process." VARIOUS OF QUEUE OF PEOPLE WAITING TO ENTER HIGH COURT CLOSE UP ON PHOTOGRAPHS OF PEOPLE WHO DIED DURING INSURRECTION IN 2014 (SOUNDBITE) (French) VICTOR PEGA, WHOSE SON DIED DURING INSURRECTION, SAYING: "We are really troubled. We have a lot of problems in our homes, we have orphans who don't eat any more, we have widows and widowers. But we have faith that this justice that has been put in place will prevail and will tell us the law and we are waiting for justice to be done because yesterday, Burkina justice was a two-speed system, there was justice for the poor and justice for the rich. Today, after the popular insurrection, martyrs have installed justice, the people of Burkina have installed justice, democracy has installed justice. We must judge them, we must sentence them and we are waiting for this sentence." VARIOUS OF SECURITY AROUND OF HIGH COURT PALACE
