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

Foday Sankoh, when we left - when we - when the fighters, RUF, was trained he didn't tell us about Charles Taylor until he was in Pendembu. When we reached Pendembu, he told us he has a friend and he told us his name is Charles Taylor. And he told us that his relationship, my Lord, has nothing to do with his own struggle. And he is struggling, he is fighting by himself and he will provide whatsoever he has because he has no money. This was a repetitive statement from Foday Sankoh. So that was the time I came to know the name, to hear the name from him, because I knew Charles Taylor before.
