Well, in Kolahun refugee camp there were a lot of NGOs there, sir, and according to my understanding then it was established to the Liberian security that the refugee camp should be respected and they never went to the refugee camp that openly to arrest people there and there were thousands of refugees there, more than hundreds of thousands of people, Sierra Leonean refugees, so it was very safe to be among people that you could identify yourself with. While in Voinjama we were subjected to all this humiliation, so it was very, very peaceful for me living there and doing my business, sir.
