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

The communication that I'm talking about, whereby it was Gullit who sent a message to Sam Bockarie over the radio saying that the ECOMOG had pushed them out of State House and that fighting was going on in Freetown at that time. I monitored it when he was sending that message to Sam Bockarie, and after he had sent the message to Sam Bockarie he first - Sam Bockarie first asked Gullit if Gullit and others still had the prisoners with them and he answered "Yes". And when he said that fighting was going on in Freetown, Sam Bockarie told him that if the men, that is the ECOMOG, forced Gullit and others out of Freetown, they should burn the fucking place and that they should not spare anything. He said that verbally.
