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

On one occasion when Captain Ben came from Kono he met us in Bunumbu. He was passing to go and meet Foday Sankoh in Pendembu and he told us that he had diamonds, he was going with diamonds and the diamonds - that was my first time - in fact, I did not even set eyes on them, but I saw them in his band, where his belt would be. He cut it open and he put the diamonds in there and it was sewn again. So he showed us the place, myself and a friend of mine, and he showed us the diamonds. He said, "Those are the diamonds that I am taking to Foday Sankoh. I'll be back." We said, "Okay."
