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

Okay. Yes. Now, let's go on to another aspect of this witness's evidence. 8 February, 2008, page 3465:

"Q. Mr Witness, you said that he - and you were talking

about Ibrahim Bah - and Abdulai Bah are the same. What do

you mean when you said that? Could you explain to us?

A. What I was saying is that Abdulai Bah, a person of his

own, is also a human being. He is a member of SOFA. He

was the one who was acting as SOFA's chief of staff.

Ibrahim Bah was a member of SOFA. He is also a member of

kafoo. He is also a member of SOFA. These two people -

these two people are all citizens of Casamance, but they

have relatives in the Gambia. These two people were all

members of SOFA group in Libya. I am giving you two names

of different people.

Q. Thank you for that clarification, Mr Witness. Now, at

the time of this meeting, the Gambian meeting, if you know

what, if anything, was Ibrahim Bah doing in Liberia?

A. Let me tell you. Then Ibrahim Bah, he used to go to

Sierra Leone and come back. Ibrahim Bah, when Foday Sankoh

started his war in Sierra Leone, he was a citizen of Gambia

who was given by Charles Taylor to join the war in

Sierra Leone. This was - then I know that Ibrahim Bah used

to go to Sierra Leone. He used to go there, spend some

time there and comes back to Liberia."

Now, starting at the beginning of that, Mr Werner's question:

"Q. You were talking about Ibrahim Bah, you said that he,

and you were talking about Ibrahim Bah, and Abdulai Bah are

the same. Are they?"
