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

Turn to page 56, please, last paragraph:

"Zigzag advised that when he stated members of the Special Forces lost interest in the war he was referring to the Liberian war when many NPFL Special Forces lost interest in fighting and were concentrating more on looting, women, abandoning their assignments and killing innocent civilians. Because of this Charles Taylor invested power on the junior commandos and Small Boy Units. SBUs were deployed to check points to arrest and detain or discipline Special Forces members excluding Benjamin Yeaten. This order was by way of written documents distributed to each commander of the NPFL and signed by Charles Taylor."

Is that true?
