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

It was on one occasion when the investigator visited the house I was really sick. I have a cardiac problem and I was in a hospital. They waited. When they called I was on my way from the hospital. They wanted to talk and I said, "Well, look, I cannot talk today, because I am sick and I am going back to the hospital tomorrow. I have to take with me some money to pay my doctors", so they looked at some of the receipts and said, "Well, if we come tomorrow, if you really owe the doctor and we are taking your time to talk to you, we will have to help with these medical bills." That was when these monies were paid. The following day, when they came I took the money to the doctor and paid the bills, based on the prescriptions and other things that had to do with the doctor that were all presented to them.
