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

Well when we got to Gbarnga, the securities that we met in Gbarnga, we got to a particular checkpoint because that was my first time to get - to go to that particular area. When we got to that particular checkpoint, those of us who went as escorts they asked us to alight from the vehicle and they asked us to take our magazines out of the arms and then they asked us to declare. By that I mean if you had any other ammunition that was on advance in the gun you should take it out of the gun. Then after doing that they asked us to give our guns to the securities, who were there at the gates, and we remained in possession of the magazines. They asked us to wait at that particular area, because we were not allowed to get to the particular Mansion Ground area where Charles Taylor was. I did not go there. I did not go there at all.
