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

So I would like you to do me a favour. I want to see Shyamala because she was a person who played a great role in my life. After I had testified, I lost my two children and I called her and informed her. She did not give me anything, but what she did to me was much more than giving me money, because every day she would call me and console me. So when I came to Freetown I was told that she was here and since I came here I have nobody to inquire about her. That is why I am requesting that please do me this favour for me to see her. Maybe after this time I will never see her again in my life. So please do me this favour for me to see her.
