Well, the indication I did receive I think was more of a perception because Mr Taylor - President Taylor kept referring to my previous articles that discussed the issues of Sierra Leone, the RUF and connecting or drawing a link between his government - that is the Government of Liberia - and the RUF. There were, I must point out, several articles in different newspapers that also reported on the abuses by Liberian government soldiers in Liberia and in Sierra Leone but my articles, in addition to reporting those incidents, also tended to draw conclusions linking directly the government of President Charles Taylor to the RUF and also saying that the Government of Liberia, we were convinced, based on evidence that we had gathered in our reporting, was supporting the Revolutionary United Front, the RUF.
