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

Reverend Jackson was a special envoy because he knew Liberia. He was sent in to look at the Sierra Leonean/Liberian/Guinean situation for the Clinton administration and to see if he could help in the process of bringing about a speedy resolution. In fact, he held meetings in Guinea, in Nigeria; Monrovia, attended by Kabbah; in the case of Monrovia, with me; Conakry, where I attended; and he played a very, very important role during that period, even during the hostage crisis that erupted around 2000, he was in the region while the whole thing was unfolding.
