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

I think I had finished with that actually. I move on to paragraph 986, and here the Defence assert that the probationary period for Foday Lansana, that's the same witness I just earlier referred to, relates to absconding from the NPFL and they cite his testimony of the 8th of February 2008, at page 4661, to support this proposition. But when examining the actual transcript for this date, there is no support that the witness said he was on probation for absconding. The witness does speak about probationary period for new operators. The witness just - does speak about probationary period for new operators but the evidence does not support it at all, that he - support the evidence about absconding. This is simply a mischaracterisation.
