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

Yes. During the time when we were giving our weapons to the UN, part of these weapons were taken to Liberia by the RUF High Command, together with manpower, and according to what he told us he said, "Mr Taylor said at any time you were talking about peace you should prepare yourself for war". Therefore he said some manpower and some arms should cross over to Liberia to be on standby, because he also had troops that were attacking him day in day out and so they decided to take all the light weapons across to Liberia and manpower. Later Superman and a good number of - or most of all his bodyguards and other fighters were sent to Liberia. That was how RUF managed to get some gunmen in Liberia, but I cannot show the figure.
