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

Ma'am, all the things you are explaining, let me tell you, that compound was a very big compound and I lived in a very small section of the compound. So I used to tour around. There was in fact a time when some of my brothers came from town, they wanted to steal the generator. When I tried to put the situation under control, they wanted to shoot at me. But let me tell you, the small area that I lived within the compound, I took very good care of the place. I did not loot any generator from that compound. The place was a very big compound. But that particular small area where I was living, I did not do anything wrong there. The place was big, some other people used to come there, maybe they did something, but I personally did not do anything. Thank you.
