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

We know those who identified themselves as being Liberian. The others, we know those also who were just imitating. They do it very close to perfection but they were imitating, because some of them who we knew before in Makeni if they go for that short time and come back we can identify. But for those we don't know we simply cannot identify, except that they cannot - from the experience I had when I was there they cannot exactly speak the language as the Liberian does, or the Liberians they were free to tell us, "I'm a Liberian. I came from such and such a county", and so forth.
