Court Resumes After Lunch Break: Cross-Examination of Witness Jabati Jaward Continues

Defecne counsel asked the witness about his knowlege of rumours that Bockarie was planning to overthrow Taylor in Liberia.

Defense counsel spent the remaining time highlighting inconsistencies in the witness’s written statement to the Prosecution and what he has said in his oral testimony in court. The witness insisted that such mistakes were made by the prosecution.

The court adjourned for the day.
