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

Thank you. Turn to page 2, please, paragraph 4:

"In 1985 while still in the Ivory Coast the witness met Prince Johnson with whom he had served in the armed forces of Liberia. The witness stated that Johnson recruited him to join the NPFL, National Patriotic Front of Liberia," and listen to this, "and in 1986 personally introduced him to Charles Taylor."

So, what I would like you to help us with, please, is this: Did you meet him - can I finish my question, please. Did you meet him when you were released from a container with fire on the top of it, or were you introduced to him by Prince Johnson in the Ivory Coast? Which of those two is right?
