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

At the time I joined the force in Liberia I was staying with the late Richard Henry, a Kongo man. From there he made the recommendation based upon my attitude towards him. He only took me to Camp Schefflein. From there I will call his name. He said, "This my son I want him to be - I want this my son to be a soldier to be assigned to me. At that time he was a speaker of the house, Richard Henry. During Tubman's administration in '78 he was a speaker of the house. That was how I joined the force, but when Doe took over he sent us a proper training in Israel.
