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

In my case it is the smaller and more manageable of the reports. About notice to the Liberian Government and I think it is on page 21. Yes, 21, 22. On page 22, about halfway down the page, it reads:

"An internet search of open press sources for official responses from the Liberian government to Human Rights Watch reports on Liberia revealed that between May 2001 and July 2002 our work on Liberia was on several occasions directly cited by Charles Taylor and senior members of his government including" - the two who you have already mentioned, Mr Goodridge and Mr Captan, "I believe this demonstrates that Human Rights Watch was successful in bringing its reports on rights violations to the attention of the government. Relevant excerpts from these articles are below."

Then the three excerpts that you give are all in 2002.
