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

Let us just have a look at that paragraph in total, shall we:

"The witness stated that he had met Foday Sankoh in Burkina Faso in late 1986, being introduced by Charles Taylor. The witness had been part of a group of NPFL combatants (including Liberians, Gambians and Sierra Leoneans) training in Burkina Faso. The training commander was identified as a 'Captain Mohammed' (a native of Burkina Faso. The witness could provide no other identifying information re the subject.) Two white male South Africans (no identifiers) also provided training at the base, which was referred to as 'Tajorah Moscow'. The training itself was directed at basic infantry skills such as weapons handling, working in small units, et cetera."

Mr Marzah, please, where did the investigators get all of that detail from?
