Various shots of guests leaving.
Press conference with Foday Sankoh [audio levels begin very low]. Host welcomes members of the press on behalf of RUF and introduces Foday Sankoh.
Sankoh talks about the RUF party's commitment to security and peace. He says that areas of RUF concentration are accessible to all Sierra Leoneans and that
allegations asserting otherwise are not true. He says that they have made great effort to disarm combatants, but that the incentives to disarm have not been delivered. He says that
ex-combatants have been shot by UN peacekeepers. He advises ex-combatants to avoid the UN peacekeepers. Sankoh asserts that the commission created in the Lomé Peace Agreement is not functional,
and that he has not received cooperation from the commission. Sankoh says the RUF party is committed to the peace process and democracy in Sierra Leone.
