The witness testified - Mr Smith testified - I'm going to pick it up in the middle of a sentence, but "as a rebel movement", reading from the top of the page:
"A ... I mean a rebel movement moving towards the capital,
obviously Mr Taylor never went on his own. He was always
accompanied by security and that seemed at that time and
even in hindsight quite normal to us. So, we met him. His
convoy stopped, the headlights on, so we had that
discussion, a tumultuous discussion which lasted probably
only a couple of minutes, and then we proceeded as
Mr Taylor had ordered it to happen.
Q. Now, you mentioned his security was with him. What
normally was the makeup of his security, if you recall?
A. There again to be precise, you would distinguish when
Mr Taylor was on the move, or whether he was in his
residence. In his residence it was a well-organised
security setup which I did not know in detail. I can only
describe it from my view point as someone who came to visit
him to interview him. So, you would have an outer ring of
security. I would associate that fairly often with the
Small Boys Unit, child soldiers, if I had to estimate young
boys, sometimes girls, between the age of from 10, 11 up to
15, 16. They would be the outer ring of security and then
you had various inner rings of security, bodyguards,
Mr Witness, were child soldiers part of the security of Charles Taylor?
