Trial Strategy

Description: 
Acknowledges Mr. Keenan's instructions to have Tavenner have over-all authority to supervise and direct the prosecution's case for individual defendants. Informs Tavenner that General Vasiliev was "somewhat disturbed" that Russian evidence was not used to "prove that the Japanese resorted to bacteriological warfare" during the China Phase. Williams responded that upon review, he felt the evidence was not sufficient to bring up that issue. Vasiliev further desired to have all the information that referenced SHIGEMITSU and UMEZU regarding "complicity" that the Tavenner's team has while he is willing to share the evidence he has regarding other defendants. Closes with a brief discussion on trial procedure, including the processing of documents.
