And we see you were asked this question by Ms Hollis:
"Q. So he, that being Ramsey Clark, just made this up out
of thin air then, it wasn't based on what you told him?
A. If you give me a chance I will answer your question.
And we have all the chances still in this trial to ask
Ramsey why he said this and who represented this to him,
because I was still in New York when General Quiwonkpa was
killed. I was still in the United States. After I reached
Africa I called my counsel and informed him and he said,
'Well, Mr Taylor, I will inform the United States
government that you are out of the United States.' So I
did not in 1990, when I'm already fighting a war in
Liberia - in 1990 I am already fighting a war in Liberia.
When Ramsey constructed this statement I want to say that
he probably made an error about this. This is constructed
long after. So I did not tell Ramsey this and at the time
he wrote this, which is when I'm already fighting in
Liberia, he probably construed that this is a continuation.
But I'll tell you, because you've raised this, I'll make
sure we get an affidavit from Ramsey Clark stating that I
did not represent this to him and I would not lie about
this and I'll make sure we do this.
Q. We suggest you did lie about it and whatever you get
from him will be to cover up your lie."
Now, Mr Taylor, were you suggesting that you were going to get a former Attorney General, a well respected lawyer in the United States, to lie on your behalf?
