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

Now, the witness was asked this at page 9423 in relation to that meeting which we have been talking about:

"Q. What were the topics that were discussed at that

particular meeting?

A. Well, firstly, we discussed about trying to free the

leader, and in that case we were to reattack Kono and go up

to Freetown and then free our leader and take over power.

We also discussed the disloyalty of SAJ Musa."

Now, pause there. I've already asked you, Mr Sesay, whether you had ever heard of an Operation Free the Leader, and you answered in the negative. Do you recall a meeting at which a mission to go up to Freetown was discussed?
