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

So the next document that I'm going to show you is an excerpt from a book and it's a book entitled "Liberia's Civil War: Nigeria, ECOMOG, and regional security in West Africa". As you can see from the screen, it's written by Adekeye Adebajo. So I'm going to turn to page 91, please. There's a passage on that page with a line - towards the top of that page with a line drawn next to it, so I'm just going to limit myself to that passage. It reads as follows:

"The United Liberation Movement of Liberia for Democracy was founded on 29 May 1991. It described itself as a 'non-tribal and nonsectarian organisation borne out of the desire of displaced Liberians to return home and continue their search for democratic freedom'; its members aimed to free Liberia 'from the plunder of Charles Taylor'."

Now, it's correct, isn't it, that one of the aims of ULIMO was indeed to free Liberia from the plunder of Charles Taylor?
