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

The first one relates to, I think paragraph 439 of the Defence brief, which deals with the ULIMO buffer zone. Paragraph 439. Closure of the border by ULIMO. In this paragraph the Defence argue that ULIMO controlled the borders between Liberia and Sierra Leone from late 1992, early 1993, to, and I quote, "June 1996." But in the closing arguments, I think it was Mr Griffiths who stated that this buffer zone was in existence until the election of the accused in July 1997. So that there is almost like a year's difference. Now, which of these times does the Defence wish the Trial Chamber to take into account?
