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

At paragraph 77 here is what the Prosecution has you saying about the composition of the Red Lion battalion. It reads:

"The witness reported that after about three or four days another fighting unit was formed. It was comprised of fighters from the three battalions and was going to be the new Red Lion battalion. There were more than 400 fighters in this group. O-Five was the commander and Major CY was the deputy commander. They went to Rosos to assist and reinforce a group that had been cut off. The witness believes that Alfred Brown and King Perry were with this group."

Madam Witness, why did you tell them, that is the Prosecutor's office, last October, that the members of this new Red Lion battalion were in excess of 400 and why did you tell us in court they were 300?
