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

Very well, let's continue, third paragraph on that page:

"Foya was controlled by Taylor forces, AFL and later pro-Taylor militias from 1997 to 2003. When the announcement was made that Taylor was leaving Liberia in 2003, a message was sent for the Taylor forces in Foya to retreat. It was so important for Taylor to keep control of Foya as it was the border town with Sierra Leone."

Now can we go on to the next paragraph, please, and I want to ask you some questions about this:

"When the LURD started its operation in 1999 the Guinean government did not know about the LURD and did not finance it."

Is that true?
