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

Your Honour, I think the position is that there is evidence to both of those effects. There is evidence from some witnesses, and indeed, a document to the effect that at the very least it was until 1996. There is other evidence that it was until Mr Taylor's election in 1997. And so I'll certainly have that investigated for you, and no doubt, in the course of tomorrow's session, we will be able to give you a resolved position on that by reference to evidence. But there is evidence from different people that says different things. What you see in paragraph 439 is the most conservative. In other words, in effect, it's the most generous account from the point of view of the Prosecution. Whereas, in fact, there is other evidence that suggests that the border closure went on for longer.
