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

Sam Larto was executed for two principal reasons, two different issues as we were trying to get him. We had the deaths of some civilians in the southeastern part of Liberia. While that was under investigation Sam Larto, in or around the - I think the Monrovia area - had shot and killed a civilian. In fact shot him in the head - someone that - it was claimed he was a thief and he was I think stealing a television and he shot and killed him. He was arrested for that wanton - for those two crimes and he was court-martialled, tried, found guilty and he was executed for those civilians.
