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

"The witness further stated that while he was convalescing in Monrovia the AFRC/RUF rebels invaded Freetown on 6 January 1999. The witness stated that two days before, 4 January 1999, Taylor called him and asked him if he was medically fit to join the RUF fighters to invade and capture Freetown, that Freetown will fall to the AFRC/RUF rebels soon. The witness told Taylor that the condition of his leg prevented him from going. The witness stated that after his wound had healed he was involved in combat operations on south eastern Liberia against anti-Taylor forces."

Help me, were you in Freetown at the time of the invasion or were you convalescing in Monrovia?
