Former Liberian Leader Charles Taylor Guilty of War Crimes


The United Nations Special Court for Sierra Leone had found Liberia’s former president, Charles Taylor, guilty of aiding, planning and abetting war crimes and crimes against humanity. This is the first-ever such international judgment against a former head of state.

The trial has been going on for several years and even had “celebrity” witnesses like Mia Farrow and supermodel Naomi Campbell.

Taylor’s ex-wife claims he is not guilty:
