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

Those who had travelled with the Pa, I mean Foday Sankoh, to Togo, like there was one of Pa Foday Sankoh's bodyguards called Junior, he came back with the same message in Buedu that that was what Foday Sankoh said that Mosquito, Issa Sesay, shouldn't misuse any government property, especially diamonds which are minerals. He said they should give them to Sankoh - I mean Charles Taylor for safekeeping. Also after that I heard that from Sam Bockarie and the radio man who was communicating for Sam Bockarie he brought the same message written on paper that Foday Sankoh had sent that message, and most times when we left Sierra Leone to go to Liberia any mineral we had it used to go to Sankoh. That is something I know about.
