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

And during the course of that questioning he was asking you, starting at line 16:

"Q. Was it repealed?

A. The government announced that it has - that it repealed

it.

Q. So it was repealed?

A. In theory, yes, sir."

I am now taking you to another reference. You were again being asked about issues related to the media in Monrovia at the time Mr Taylor became President and this is reference 22551 and this is starting at lines 7 through to 15. Counsel asked you:

"Q. Now, would you also agree that in Monrovia at that

time there were a number of newspapers published?

A. Yes, sir.

Q. And would you also agree that it was a somewhat lively

print media environment?

A. What period is this, sir?

Q. We're talking about round about July/ August '97. It

was pretty lively, wasn't it?

A. Correct."

Do you remember saying that?
