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

Foday Sankoh called Pa James over ten times. The only thing I heard from him, that was not the time I was arrested. This first arrest was done with the real, real people that we depended on. Like Peter Vandi, Issa Sesay, Morris Kallon. So when they called him, when he was doing this arrest, that has now come to the Top 40. When he did this arrest, your Honour, Foday Sankoh called that man, he could not answer. The only thing I heard Pa James saying was that, "Papay, we are here on our own and we are fighters and we are Special Forces." I don't know where he derived that, he go that name from, because my understanding of Special Forces is quite different. So he couldn't listen until they put those guys in the truck and took them to Mobai. There he executed Augustine.
