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

I was very close to him. We used to sit together and discuss. And most of the things that he was not satisfied with that had caused him to leave the RUF, we used to sit down and talk about them. He - the effort that he had really made for the RUF, he said he had never benefitted anything. The fact that he has left Sierra Leone, he was regretful of that. He said Mr Taylor called him and told him that he should leave there because Foday Sankoh wanted Issa Sesay to take over as commander because Mosquito maybe one of these days might take over the RUF. That was Sankoh's fear. So I was very close to him and we were doing things in common.
