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

"President Taylor informed the Secretary-General that Liberia was moving forward towards destruction of the weapons that had been collected. He had studied the report and would accept the recommendations in area 1. Cambodia, with its few arms, and Mali, with its good show, had gotten significant international attention and support with the destruction of arms used in those conflicts. What Liberia was about to do would be ten times larger and the country wanted its share of the limelight."

It's share of the limelight, Mr Taylor?
