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

Very well. My second-last question relates to Mr Taylor's being the "ECOWAS point president", in quotes, in 1998. Now, Mr Griffiths, during his presentation, mentioned ECOWAS minutes showing that ECOWAS asked Mr Taylor to quote unquote "get involved" in Sierra Leone. And this is referred to at the transcript at pages 49465 to 49466. Mr Griffiths then mentioned documents referring to Taylor's involvement in 1999, and I think it was Mr Koumjian who raised this issue that there is lack of documentation supporting Mr Taylor's mediating role in 1998.

Now, can the Defence refer to any documentation on Mr Taylor's role in Sierra Leone in 1998? Or not? That is one question. If you can't answer it today.
