My Lord, I know, because those atrocities committed for example in 1998, there was no RUF present in Koinadugu District from February '98 up to August. It was only the AFRC who were there. And those same AFRC moved down to Bombali District, up to the time they attacked Karina, and they went down to Port Loko District and down to Freetown in early 1999. And during those times, those were the times that the amputations actually took place, because, when we attacked Kono and we went to Masingbi, Magburaka, Makeni in December '98, no amputations took place. And even the civilians in Makeni did not see anyone being amputated in November 1998.
