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

You have told us about the name NPFL and when you, the trainees in Libya, acquired that name. This is what Mr Marzah has to say and I want you to comment on that. He was asked.

"Q. Now, with the organisation that you joined and you

said you then entered Liberia with Prince Johnson, did that

have a name? What was the name of the organisation?

"A. At first we never had a name. We called ourselves

freedom fighters.

Q. Did you later get a name?

A. Yes, after the arrival of Mr Taylor in Gborplay that we

had the name the NPFL, the National Patriotic Front of

Liberia."

Do you agree with Mr Marzah's evidence here that you started using the name NPFL at Gborplay when Mr Taylor arrived?
