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

Madam Kallon, you understand the discussion we've just had. You know somebody as Johnny Paul and the person you saw in Monrovia you've told us is Johnny Paul so please ignore the occasional slips when I add another name to that person's name as you know him. But let us continue. I will do my best to avoid this error. Page 43041, transcript of yesterday. Now, line 16 I asked you this question and this was in relation to Foday Sankoh.

"Q. Do you know what the purpose was behind his visit to

Monrovia?

A. At that time, from what was being said, they said

after the peace talks he was to pass through Monrovia.

That was where they were to set off from for Sierra Leone."

Do you know what the purpose was behind them passing through Monrovia before going onward to Sierra Leone?
