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

Witness, when you were testifying about a communication relating to the weakening of the ECOMOG forces so that ECOMOG will not be able to reinforce their troops in Freetown, you said in one of your answers - your Honours, I am referring to page 8254, in particular to lines 17 and 18. Witness, so you are clear on what I am asking you I will read to you the question that was put to you. The question was: "When you said they were weakening the ECOMOG so they will not reinforce Freetown firstly tell the Court who was weakening the ECOMOG." In your answer you said: "Well, as I earlier said, it was an operation that was planned." That was the answer you gave. Now can you explain what you meant when you said, "It was an operation that was planned"?
