Now, on that same topic, that same witness, on 11 February 2008, page 3537 of the transcript, said this:
"Q. Now, if you know from, what sources did the LDF get

Q. Now, if you know, who was issuing the weapons in
A. Tell him that we used to take the weapons from Charles

Q. What did you hear, Mr Witness?
A. Tell him that Yakbawalo has even spoke in BBC to say
