Now, sir, I want to compare what Pa Moriba told you to what he told another witness, TF1-585. If we could have the transcript for 9 September 2008, page 15767. Actually we can just start at 15768. I'll just try to make it a little shorter, what I read. Starting from the first line, the witness said:
"We arrived in Monrovia at night so in the morning Papay Moriba went to Benjamin Yeaten's house in Congo Town, Monrovia. As he went he did not take long and he came back and he asked me," and there's some issue about interpretation and the witness is then asked to continue their evidence and the witness answers:
"So he told me that if I knew that Sam Bockarie and his
family had been killed.
Q. Did he tell you or was he asking you?
A. He told me.
Q. Were you able to confirm this news, this information,
that Papay Moriba gave to you?
A. Yes, I confirmed it later.
Q. How did you confirm this information?
A. Ma Toasty told me.
Q. Could you give us the name again of the person who told
And the name Toasty is spelled.
"Q. Can you tell the Court how you got to learn from
Toasty or how Toasty confirmed this information to you
about the killing of Sam Bockarie and his family?
A. He met me because at that time I was - I was now in
hiding, so he too was hiding. They were in the hiding
place and they left there because they lacked some things
where they were, so he came to me where I was hiding and he
told me that, do you know that Master and every other
person has been killed. And then he said, 'Even myself,
I'm hiding with my family.' He said those pick-ups which
were full with manpower, our brothers were in those
vehicles that were taken, he said all of them had been
killed. He said even Master had been killed. He said,
'I'm in a hiding place.'"
Then if we can skip down to the bottom of the page, he was asked in the last six lines:
"Q. When you spoke to Toasty and confirmed this
information, did Toasty tell you who killed Sam Bockarie
and his family as well as all the other fighters that he
had been told you had been killed.
A. Yes, he told that it was 50, that that was
Charles Taylor's order".
Mr Witness, do you know that Benjamin Yeaten was known as "50"?
