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

Mr Koumjian, I know we are going through this again and I don't want us to go backward and forward. As far as I'm concerned, if I'm understanding you properly, and I'll answer your questions, you seek to impeach what you read to these judges that in fact the account was not - it was not a government account, it is a personal account. I think that's the issue. As to the covert nature of the account, that's the responsibility of the people of Liberia to determine as to whether money went into my pocket or not and none of your business. My answer to you is that the amount that went into this account was covert, it was used covertly and I'm under no obligation to tell you what those covert operations were.
