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

I'm going to ask you another question. If you look over the page on page 22 you mention three reasons why you didn't send the reports directly to President Taylor in Liberia. The national postal system, the lack of fax and indeed telephone calls and no email contact. Then you say, "However we believe that because we received wide media coverage of our reports in Liberia and internationally" - in other words wide media coverage internationally and in Liberia, "President Charles Taylor was put on constructive notice of the contents of our reports."

Now you don't say there when you're dealing specifically with how Mr Taylor will have heard of your reports, you don't mention for one moment, do you, that you sent your reports to his diplomatic missions in the United States, the United Kingdom or the United Nations headquarters at New York, do you?
