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

He was referring to the behaviour of the ATU. The ATU took the law upon themselves. They behaved as though they were not under control. They did not behave as a military unit. They took everything on to themselves. Sometimes they left guard posts, they would attack anybody in the street and take away from them anything they had and they had no regard for anybody. As long as you were not a member of the ATU they would not respect you. I think that was what he was trying to refer to. It was the behaviour of the men.
