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

The finance minister in question was a minister of government and on one occasion he wanted - Mr Taylor wanted some money to be disbursed to the Executive Mansion and he refused to do that on the grounds that every money disbursed from the finance ministry must be signed for and he became very tough on that. I did not see him discussing it with him - discussed, but he discussed that with me and he said, "When the President asked me to give him some money and I refused and that he should sign for this money and that whosoever was to receive money was to sign for that money and it was only on that account that the money will be disbursed", and after that he lost his job. I didn't know what happened, but I saw him at one time and he told me he was not working any longer.
