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

Well, let me read you what you told the RUF Trial Chamber about Mandaha. Your Honours, it's in tab 6, page 19. At page 19, this is on direct examination, Prosecutor Mohamed Bangura asking you the questions, starting at line 8:

"Q. Did you stay in Mandaha for long?

A. Yes, sir.

Q. How long were you there for?

A. We spent six days at Mandaha.

Q. Did anything happen at Mandaha?

A. Yes, sir.

Q. What happened there?

A. They fought at Mandaha.

Q. Who fought at Mandaha?

A. The combat men with another group."

Madam Witness, that's what you told the RUF Trial Chamber about Mandaha, no mention of your brother's brutal killing. Do you agree this is what you told the Chamber back in March 2006?
