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

I said during Prince Johnson's administration there was no authority to go and harass civilians, or even to rape, or to loot, during Prince Johnson's administration. When you joined Prince Johnson, the cloth that you had on you you would battle with it until you return.

What he told us was to battle against soldiers and to ensure that we overthrow Doe from the directive from Charles Taylor to him.
