"CT has a bank account in Burkina Faso. It goes under the name Jean-Michel Some. The bank is the BICEO owned by all countries that using the CFA and BIB. He has had the account since 1987. Musa Cisse used to withdraw money from the account with cheques given to him by CT. CT also has a Swiss bank account that was set up by Grace Minor - it is controlled by Talal El-Ndine. Money from logs makes its way to the Swiss accounts, and it is then transferred to the BF account. The Swiss account was set up in 1993. Gaddafi was pumping money into the Swiss account during the war. Taylor, in turn, gave gifts?"
