The transcripts of the trial of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia.
Okay. Thank you.
Can I ask the question?
No, no, no.
Well, I don't know who my questions are going to be referred to because you are in charge of this Court.
Excuse me, my Lord, am I allowed to ask questions or make suggestions?
Thank you very much.
Well, it was the cover but the contents - though I cannot - I cannot say everything that is in the content - the one I saw earlier, but they had similar contents. But the one I saw exactly was not that type of picture on the cover.
I saw that document in 1993.
I can't. I can't tell you anything in respect of the volumes that were produced.
I can't --
The cover of the "Footpaths to Democracy" I knew had no baby on it or a woman on it. It was men sitting, the cover I am conversant with. That was why when initially this document was placed before me I disputed that I did not know anything in respect ...
I have no idea in respect of that.
No, no, no.
By, let me say - I cannot actually be specific on who - all those who placed these ideas together.
Well, it was a collection of ideas put together.
I think it was in January - January '96.
27 April 19 - no, 29 April 1992.
Of course, in Kenema. Though I was not there when they were being shot but after they were being shot we used to go to the cemetery, because I was staying very close to the cemetery, and see the dead bodies. They can kill up to 10, 20, 15 at ...
Anybody known to have close connection was executed by the security forces, and I witnessed that in Kenema. Common civilians - mostly it was if you are not well dressed, because that is how they used to associate rebels. Anything clean is not part of the rebel. The worst in society ...
I'm not able to help in this case.
I'm guessing. It's just a guess.
Well, I can say maybe the area Major Bala was in, maybe these were the female civilians that were living in that particular area where he was in charge.
Because it's just a list. It's not so explicit.
Well, because this is my first time of seeing this list, so I cannot just see names of civilian women and I see "officers in charge" and exactly say why were these women attached to these officers.
Well, to my own knowledge, in respect of what we are here for, they say it's magic, but I don't believe in such.
A money doubler is somebody who comes around and say if you have $1,000 I will make that $1,000 rise up to $10,000, $15,000.
I have no idea in respect of what you are saying.
Yes, it was a boy.
If my memory serves me well, I only know one.
Yes, I know her.
I was telling you about one Major Bala. You showed me a list and I was trying to pinpoint that here is Major Bala. The wife I knew for Major Bala is Massa. And on that document we saw three female against Major Bala's name, not even indicating that ...
I don't think I made mention of Sam Bockarie's wife in any of my statements yesterday.
