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

So Mr Sesay, you are telling the judges that you are here to tell the truth to set the record straight, that there is a problem with that, Mr Sesay, because the Prosecution says that actually you are here to lie for Mr Taylor who, once he gets out of prison, will talk on your behalf and possibly get you an early release. You remember that suggestion being made by learned counsel opposite, that Mr Taylor, who sits here, who is also in jail and could not save himself from jail is, once he gets free, going to talk on your behalf for you to be set free. What do you say to that suggestion by learned counsel opposite?
