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

"The rebels who threatened on Friday to attack Monrovia if President Charles Taylor did not step down say they control much of northwest Liberia and deny the government has the upper hand. 'We are still in full control of the areas we have taken and we are moving ahead,' a rebel official in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, said today in a telephone interview."

Can I pause again. Now, Mr Taylor, bearing in mind the geographical location of that rebel official in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, was the Ivory Coast at this time harbouring rebel elements opposed to your government?
