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

A question was asked by learned counsel opposite at line 24:

"Q. Madam Witness, I'm going to ask you a question and I

want you to give me a very short answer, because I'm going

to ask you details later in a different session. You

mentioned that President Taylor had a satellite phone.

Just tell us how did you know that President Taylor had a

satellite phone?

A. Because I had his number at the time, direct number

from him, and I had his satellite - the direct number for

his satellite phone and the cell phone. But presently I

can only remember the cell phone because it's very short,

but I can't remember that for the satellite phone.

Q. Can you tell us President Taylor's cell phone number at

the time you were in Liberia now from memory?

A. Yes.

Q. What was his cell phone number?"

And then the witness gives a number. Now, this witness indicated that they were in Liberia off and on, but in a concentrated period of about two years, between 2000 and 2002, 2003. The transcripts for those references, one of them starts at page 12618, another one at page 12646, another one at page 12650, another one page 12649 and at page 12651. All those transcripts taken together put a time frame during the period of time when this witness says they were in Liberia for a longer duration or period of time.

Now, Madam President, could we go into private session, please.
