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

Well, from the meeting on that day I rose up and brought up my own point. I said there was one point that was causing the indiscipline among the soldiers in the ATU at that time. I said the slogan that we always went with was, "There is no 'I' in team." I said that was causing a serious problem. I said where a group of soldiers were assigned, when one soldier causes a problem all the rest of the soldiers are punished because of that individual's behaviour. I said some of our friend soldiers were taking advantage of this to do it because they were not going to be bear the consequences alone, so I suggested that whenever a soldier causes a problem that individual should bear the penalty for that particular behaviour. So I can remember that being my own point on that day in that meeting.
