men and his radio man.

A. Well, at that time we went but the helicopter had not

arrived yet because he told us that the helicopter was to

Now, there is a lot there that I want to ask you about, Mr Sesay. So what this individual is saying, sometime after the intervention, so after February 1998, he gets a call from Sam Bockarie who tells him that he, Sam Bockarie, has received a call from Pa Taylor, who will be sending ammunition to Foya by helicopter and you are to go there and collect it. Any truth in that?
