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

Move on. Number 9:

"Jackson's remark - take on the rumours directly. In the portion opened to the press, Jackson's closing line was his strongest and set the stage for the follow-on session from which the press was excluded. Jackson counselled Taylor to take on directly the rumours of Government of Liberia complicity in gun-running/diamond smuggling/bringing mercenaries to the region. These rumours and activities that serve as the basis for them jeopardised Taylor's government."

Now, Mr Taylor, did Jackson use the word "that special envoy rumours" or did he say "we have evidence"?
