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

I'm sure it's my fault, Madam President, and I'm sure I'm the one who is being stupid, but I note that at page 9429 the witness says this:

"Q. This particular meeting, how long did it go on for?

A. It was a very short meeting, just for three hours,

because it was at night and we did not even want Johnny

Paul to know."

You go to page 9430, line 18:

"Q. This meeting, this three hour short meeting, was there

anything else discussed apart from the plan to attack

Freetown and the SAJ Musa issue?

A. Yes."

So it's one meeting at which a number of different things are discussed. This is a Prosecution witness, so I cannot understand why there is this difficulty in understanding the testimony of their own witness.
