The transcripts of the trial of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia. More…

Whatever I needed I brought with me from there. I didn't return to Burkina Faso until later on, I would say March/April - about March. But whatever I needed I brought with me. I was in hiding in la Cote d'Ivoire. Let me re-emphasise this. My stay in la Cote d'Ivoire for that short time during the initial entry into Liberia, I was in hiding around the border. It was not with the knowledge and/or consent of the Ivorian government. So I was being sought after by Ivorian authorities, but I was being hidden by tribal individuals on the border that were connected with my Special Forces. So - but I can tell you during that time if I needed money, I would have had to send someone back and the most probable individual would have been Musa Cisse. But what I needed, I brought with me when I was coming from Ouagadougou.
