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

Sir, I want to go back to the last answer you gave before the break and ask you some questions. I had asked you if it was true that you and others had asked Foday Sankoh to please go and talk to Charles Taylor about the problem with the NPFL. You answered:

"It was not really an order or something, but I told him, I said, Foday Sankoh, or Pa Sankoh, since you know that these people are here and they are always telling us that nobody sent them here, they are Special Forces, why can't we contact the leader of the nation where they are coming from? And he said he will do that later."

First of all, when you said that these people were Special Forces, the Special Forces were people like Francis Mewon. He was a Special Forces trained soldier, correct?
