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

For so many reasons. I'll just give two quickly. Star Radio was operating outside of Liberian law. It was a radio station that had been given by the United States government for the purposes of the election to, quote unquote, level the playing field. Our argument was that: Fine, after elections, turn it over to somebody, University or whatever. Under the laws of Liberia as a foreign entity and you having ownership of this radio station, you cannot operate it in Liberia. That was principally the thing. And I said if you turn it over to any other person, a Liberian group that under the laws of Liberia could be licensed, it could operate. Other than that, no.
