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

Well, I couldn't say, counsel, that he had no right. He's a Liberian citizen, he could do what he wanted to do. As per the justification aspect, my opinion regarding that would be subjective, would be what I feel. There may be other people who thought that the war led by Mr Charles Taylor was justified, but I do really not believe that, especially taking into consideration what happened in the historical parenthesis of 24 December 1989 and July 19 - well, up to the election in July 1997 - could have been justified by anybody.
