The largest item in the breakdown of anticipated expenses is 950,000 pounds ($532,000) for special cable, telephone and radio equipment. Other items include completion of the Municipal Cultural Center, where the trial will be held, technical and electronic processing equipment, furniture, security arrangements and prosecution expenses.
