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

Well, Prince Johnson pulled a little trick. He gets into the Monrovia area with a group that he calls the INPFL, that is the Independent National Patriotic Front. Along the way Prince Johnson is telling everywhere he reaches "I am working for my leader Charles Taylor and I'm just moving along." And so he got along with a whole lot.

He gets into Monrovia and he strikes a deal with Samuel Doe and he actually enters the city. Prince Johnson comes and he captures and sits into an area of Monrovia called the Freeport of Monrovia. Unfortunately, this is where Doe is killed. Prince Johnson works out a deal with Samuel Doe by telling Doe that he wants peace and he wants to join Doe to help to fight against me because in fact I am chasing him. Doe begins to supply Prince with material.
