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

About the war in Sierra Leone. I told you I saw our fighters Dopoe Menkarzon and Christopher Varmoh, they were in Sierra Leone fighting and they themselves told me that they were in Sierra Leone fighting. So that was what I was referring to, that as I became President of Liberia I will never send anybody to Sierra Leone to fight with any other group in Sierra Leone, and even not to attack the country directly myself as President. I told them that that will never happen and I said, "Let bygones be bygones", and that we should live as good neighbours.
