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

I am basing it on my recollection. I could be wrong, but I am confident enough to make the submission that my recollection was that there was a question to him. Just so your Honours are clear I will wait until you - I am informed from somebody watching the video that I actually am correct. It is the second page - the top of the second page. Your Honours will note where they are speaking of Staff Alhaji and there is a line, "... he was just a soldier or a rebel. He was a soldier, Staff Alhaji." My submission is that there was a question in there put to the witness and the witness responded "He was a soldier". According to this translation, this all looks like one response. That is why I am taking issue with this translation.
