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

I would put Gbarnga to about - roughly about the same time that we are progressing toward Monrovia, so we are talking about roughly between June/July. We are moving in two directions. A group is going towards Monrovia, and a group is going backward to Gbarnga. Gbarnga may have been captured a little earlier than our encirclement of Monrovia because, as I mentioned to the Court, there is virtually no resistance behind us.

Once we cut these people off most of the soldiers flee and so the first scout unit that we sent to the area didn't really find anything, so it was a very short time. So I would really put this to - if I really wanted to be pushed on this - to not later than maybe June because it was captured a little earlier than getting the circle around Monrovia.
