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

Can we go to the final paragraph on that page, please:

"In relation to the purchase of arms by the RUF from ULIMO, the witness states that Taylor's intention has been to, 'Open corridors between Liberia and Sierra Leone so that Sam Bockarie could have free movement back and forth and people from Lofa should have free movement to Sierra Leone.' If the people brought the arms forward for sale to Sam Bockarie, no-one would have anything to fear about trading these arms. This information was spread to the fighters in the Lofa area."
