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

Well, now, I am going to show you that and parts of the other interviews and I am going to distribute copies so that you can have it in front of you and everybody else in Court can have it in front of them. (Your Honour, if you will bear with me for just a moment? Your Honour, there should be the usual number of copies available for the Court, my learned friends opposite, the legal officers and the witness. For the sake of speed I have photocopied the entire contents, but I am certainly not intending to take the witness to more than a small fraction of the bundle. I think one is going to be taken to the interpreter, or has been taken to the interpreter.)

Now before we look at the first interview, I want to ask you very briefly a couple of questions about the coup that Dr Manneh was involved in. You were 17 at the time, that is right, isn't it, 1981? 17, or 18? In fact you would have been 16 or 17, yes?
