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

Mr Koumjian, the United Nations imposed an arms embargo on Liberia. Any transfer from this account for the purchase of arms would have been stopped because the clearing for all of the money coming out of LBDI went through New York, Citibank. So it was impossible. So if money is coming out of this account being paid on a personal level the United Nations will not know that what it is going for and it is none of their concern, but the Government of Liberia it would be a different concern because New York served as a clearing house for LBDI.
