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

"The lack of proof against Liberia could very well be due to the fact that the accusing fingers are being pointed at the wrong person and that other possible sources of support for the rebels have been ruled out. Circumstantial evidence and the process of elimination are not tenable grounds upon which to make such grave accusations against a state member of the United Nations. We believe that the United Nations Observer Mission in Sierra Leone should conduct its own independent analysis of the situation, and that the international community should not be compelled to make decisions based on speculation."

Did anyone carry out such an independent analysis of the situation, Mr Taylor?
