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

The sequence of questions started with how long did you remain in Liberia, a very general question, and the witness responded. Mr Santora reminded or restated that it was late '91 to '92 for his training and then said "Is that right?" which technically could be cross-examining your witness because you are saying to him, "Is this evidence that you have already given us correct?" So perhaps rephrase that. I think I know what you are saying, Mr Santora, but rephrase it so that it does not imply that he could correct himself when in fact it has been given clearly.
