"Q. Just one matter I wish to return to from your evidence
this morning, when I was asking you questions about the
meeting that took place in December 1998, the
three-hour meeting, and you said one of the issues was the
SAJ Musa issue, I asked you this: Did Sam Bockarie say how
SAJ Musa was to die? And you gave this answer:
Well, in the military terms, they say it should be during
operations, you know. If they will mean arms, he should
die during the battle, he should be shot. Can you just
explain what you meant by that answer."
"A. What I meant, when they said somebody should die, he
should be killed in a battle or in operation. We were not
fighting with sticks. A commander will not come to tell
you that you should use a knife or a stick. During battles
we were using rifles, that's why I said the man should be
killed with an arm. That was why I said he should be
killed during the battle. Arms should be used. I don't
know if that is clear enough."
Over the page, 9451, line 11:
"A. That man was a commander and he had a lot of soldiers
under his command. He cannot be lying in his house while
there were securities and you would go there and kill him.
That would not be easy. The only time you would get your
colleague, that should be when firing was going on, when
everybody would be concentrating on the enemy. That was
the easiest time you would kill somebody that you had
Did Bockarie give an order for the killing of SAJ Musa, Mr Sesay?
