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

Well, the one that came it was at Magburaka that they brought them, but even before they brought them Johnny Paul had told us that his brother, who is Mr Taylor, was going to send something for us and that was small amount of ammunition and he said we should go and receive them at Magburaka, because at Magburaka we had an airstrip. So, that was where we went and at that time they appointed Fonte Kanu, who was an SLA. He led us to go and receive the ammunition. Mike Lamin also went. I also went.
