Associate evidence custodian Bastiaan Van der Laaken took the stand to explain the technical process of assembling an Excel database of evidence collected by the prosecution.This evidence primarily consists of phone and mapping data, including call sequence tables; cell site data from mobile service providers; alleged attribution of phone numbers to users or colored phone networks; locations of interest; and the Hariri convoy's routes. After they are introduced in court, these layers of evidence are uploaded into the Electronic Presentation of Evidence software. While Dimitri repeatedly questioned the accuracy of the call sequence tables assembled from call data records, Van der Laaken pointed out he was not a telecoms data analyst, and his role was structuring the data to be read by the EPE.Furthermore, Dimitri sought to suggest that errors lay in the transferring of data from the call data records to the call sequence tables; from the tables to the Excel spreadsheets; and from Excel to the EPE. Dimitri will continue cross-examining him Tuesday.
