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

Mr Taylor, I want to remind you about testimony you gave about money given from Taiwan just a short time ago, 26 November. If Mr Taylor could be shown page 32633. Sir, you were asked on that day by myself:

"Q. After you became President did you receive any further

assistance - money from Taiwan?

A. Personally no, but the government yes. And, by the

way, Taiwan even before I became President had diplomatic

recognition with the Republic of Liberia even before I

became President.

Q. They probably paid money to President Doe for that,


A. I don't know. I can't comment on that. I don't know.

Q. But after you became President you received no further


A. Personally, no."
