  • Police Legal Department Is Ignorant And Should Be Overhauled, Evans' Lawyer Taunts

    The controversial lawyer representing billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike (aka Evans), says the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) legal department should be overhauled as it seems "they do not know anything." Mr. Olukoya Ogungbeje said this in the premises of the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, after the hearing of the fundamental human right suit filed by Evans against the NPF, the Inspector General of Police, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and the and Lagos State Commissioner of Police. In an interview outside the courtroom, Evans' lawyer slammed the Nigerian police and its officers, saying they were scared. "We were in court, they argued their case, and they goofed. We came this morning, they are afraid of judgment. Who is fooling who?" Continuing, he said, "They can...

  • LAWYERS AND HUMAN RIGHTS GROUPS COMMENT AHEAD OF TAYLOR SENTENCE

    (30 May 2012) On Wednesday, an international war crimes court will deliver its sentence on warlord-turned-Liberian president Charles Taylor. In a landmark ruling in April, judges at the Special Court for Sierra Leone found Taylor guilty of 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including murder, rape and conscripting child soldiers. Judges at the United Nations-backed court said his aid was essential in helping rebels in Sierra Leone continue their bloody rampage during the West African nation's decade-long civil war, which ended in 2002 with more than 50-thousand people dead. Judges found Taylor helped the rebels obtain weapons in full knowledge they would likely be used to commit terrible crimes, in exchange for payments of "blood diamonds" often obtained by slave labou...

    Sierra Leone, a country that experienced one of the most brutish civil wars between 1991 and 2002, can offer answers at least to some of the myriad of accountability questions raised in transitional justice. After the war Sierra Leone established two institutions: a Truth and Reconciliation Commission (SLTRC) and the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL). The SLTRC assembled many perpetrators of atrocities during the war and victims of the same war, as well as those who created the sociological, political and economic environment that led to the war in the first place. The SCSL is a unique hybrid tribunal of local and international law, established to indict, prosecute, and convict those who bear 'greatest responsibility for war crimes' committed within the country during the period of th...

The controversial lawyer representing billionaire kidnapper, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike (aka Evans), says the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) legal department should be overhauled as it seems "they do not know anything." Mr. Olukoya Ogungbeje said this in the premises of the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, after the hearing of the fundamental human right suit filed by Evans against the NPF, the Inspector General of Police, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and the and Lagos State Commissioner of Police. In an interview outside the courtroom, Evans' lawyer slammed the Nigerian police and its officers, saying they were scared. "We were in court, they argued their case, and they goofed. We came this morning, they are afraid of judgment. Who is fooling who?" Continuing, he said, "They cannot approbate and reprobate in law. The police legal section needs to be overhauled. They don't know what they are doing. They don't know anything. We are the applicant and we are ready for judgment," he declared. Evans had sued the police apparatus and its officers both at the national and state levels for unjustly holding him in detention. The man who is reputed to have made billions of naira from kidnapping is also asking for N300 million in damages. At the last hearing, Justice Abdulaziz Anka adjourned the case for judgment till today, August 29, but an application filed by the police inhibited the scheduled judgment. However, at the resumption of trial today, Justice Ankasaid he would not give judgment because of a pending application. “The question is, can I still go ahead when there are still motions before me and the fact that the applicant refused service?” he asked. "I’ve read the case file, I’ve seen the processes attached inclusive of a court order.” The police had approached the court with an application seeking an order to set aside the court's ruling that adjourned Evans fundamental human right suits for judgment today. David Igbodo, the counsel for the police and the IGP, appearing in court for the first time, contended that Evans had not duly served them the originating summons, hence the need for an order to allow the 1st and 2nd respondents to serve their counter-affidavit. Mr. Igbodo, also a commissioner of police in the Legal Department, argued that the court is duty bound to ensure fair hearing to all the parties, adding that they were now ready to move their application. “This matter is very important to the IG,” he said, adding that before the 25th (of September), Evans would be charged to court. The NPF also disowned Henry Obiazi, the lawyer who represented the 1st and 2nd respondents in court during the last hearing, saying he had “acted out of permission". Ogungbeje, opposing the application, said the intention was to arrest the judgment. “When judgment is slated, no application can stall judgment,” he stated. “It is our strong view to the learned counsel to the first and second respondents that his application is calculated to arrest the judgment of the court". By mutual consent, the case was adjourned to September 5.

(30 May 2012) On Wednesday, an international war crimes court will deliver its sentence on warlord-turned-Liberian president Charles Taylor. In a landmark ruling in April, judges at the Special Court for Sierra Leone found Taylor guilty of 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity, including murder, rape and conscripting child soldiers. Judges at the United Nations-backed court said his aid was essential in helping rebels in Sierra Leone continue their bloody rampage during the West African nation's decade-long civil war, which ended in 2002 with more than 50-thousand people dead. Judges found Taylor helped the rebels obtain weapons in full knowledge they would likely be used to commit terrible crimes, in exchange for payments of "blood diamonds" often obtained by slave labour. It was the first time a former head of state had been convicted of war crimes since the aftermath of World War II. Taylor is due to be sentenced on May 30, with prosecutors demanding an 80-year prison term, and defence lawyers arguing he should at least be given a sentence that leaves him some hope for life after release. Defence attorney Courtenay Griffiths argued for a sentence that reflects Taylor's indirect role: he was found guilty only of aiding the rebels, not leading them, as prosecutors originally charged. "It's questionable from our point of view whether the imposition of such a long sentence will have any real impact because people will see through the falsity of the reasoning behind the imposition of such a sentence," Griffiths said. Griffiths said the 80 year sentencing demand was disproportionate for Taylor, who is 64. "If Taylor's verdict is really ending the idea of immunity, then it should equally apply to powerful countries as it does to weaker countries like Liberia, so it is a very important precedent in that regard", Griffiths said. However, he added that he doubted "this decision will act as a restraint upon Russia, upon the United States, against the powerful countries in this world". The prosecution and human rights groups underlined the significance of the sentence as a precedent as well as for the victims in Sierra Leone and Liberia. "What it will do is it will ensure that people who are eventually held to account and are tried will know that the international community is taking this seriously and will continue to take this seriously, and hopefully if the sentence reflects that, that will also reinforce that position", said Andie Lambe of the London-based human rights group "Global Witness". Taylor said during his sentencing hearing on May 16 that he sympathises with victims of the civil war in Sierra Leone he helped foment, and asked judges to render their sentence against him in a spirit of "reconciliation, not retribution." However, he stopped short of admitting any wrongdoing, apologising for his actions, or expressing remorse. He insisted his actions had actually been designed to help stabilise the region and claimed he never knowingly assisted in the commission of crimes. Taylor fled into exile in Nigeria after being indicted by the court in 2003 and wasn't arrested for three years. While the Sierra Leone court is formally based in that country's capital, Taylor's trial is being staged in Leidschendam, a suburb of The Hague, Netherlands, for fear holding it in West Africa could destabilise the region. Taylor is awaiting the sentencing in his cell in a special international wing of a Dutch jail in The Hague.

The decision to uphold the conviction and 50-year sentence of former Liberian President Charles Taylor has been welcomed by prosecution lawyers, but his defence say they are disappointed. The appeals chamber of the Special Court for Sierra Leone in the Hague upheld the 65-year-old Taylor's conviction on Thursday, on 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity including terrorism, murder, rape and using child soldiers. Brenda Hollis, the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor, said, "This final decision affirms Taylor's responsibility for grave crimes which caused untold suffering to many thousands, if not tens of thousands of victims in Sierra Leone." "Today's judgment brings some measure of justice to those victims who suffered so horribly because of Charles Taylor," she added. But Taylor's defence lawyers said he should have been acquitted, on the grounds that the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia had set a precedent that in order to aid and abet a crime, a suspect had to have "specifically directed" aid toward committing crimes. "What we now have as a consequence of this judgment in the landscape of international criminal law is an entirely chaotic jurisprudence. The law on aiding and abetting now has, if you will, different meaning in different courts in The Hague," said appeal counsel Morris Anyah. But judges in the Taylor case openly disagreed with that. They said the key to guilt in aiding and abetting a crime is that a suspect's participation encouraged the commission of crimes and had a substantial effect on the crimes actually being committed - not the particular manner in which a suspect was involved. Taylor was convicted not only of aiding and abetting Sierra Leone rebels from his seat of power in neighbouring Liberia, but also for actually planning some of the attacks carried out by two Sierra Leone rebel groups - the Revolutionary United Front and the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council. In return he was given "blood diamonds" mined by slave labourers in Sierra Leone and gained political influence in volatile West Africa. Prosecuting Taylor proved how hard it is to bring leaders to justice. He fled into exile in Nigeria after being indicted in 2003 and wasn't arrested for three years. And while the Sierra Leone court is based in that country's capital, Taylor's trial was staged in the Netherlands for fear it could destabilise the region.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Charles Taylor, Former Liberian President: (Broadcast on large television screen) "If it pleases the court I would like to respond to all eleven counts at the end because there are some issues that I would like to mention here about the recognition of this court. Another issue is that I would not be able to put in a plea at this particular time. There's an issue here regarding this court and it's right to exercise jurisdiction over me as the twenty first President of the republic of Liberia. The other issue is about how I got here. If it pleases you, your honour, these to me are fundamental issues so for me it is not a matter now of entering a plea because I do not recognise the jurisdiction of this court." UNTV 9. Judge and panel on the trial of Charles Taylor, at the UN compound in Freetown 10. Various of former Liberian President Charles Taylor at trial 11. Judge STORYLINE: Former Liberian President Charles Taylor pleaded not guilty Monday to war crimes and crimes against humanity, including sexual slavery, mutilation and sending children into combat. Taylor at first said he could not plead on the charges, which stem from his role in Sierra Leone's civil war, because he did not recognise the court. But after Justice Richard Lussick insisted, Taylor said calmly: "Most definitely, your honour, I did not and could not have committed those acts against the sister republic of Sierra Leone.'' Lussick accepted Taylor's that as a plea of "not guilty.'' Taylor was once feared across the region for fomenting violence in his homeland, in Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast and elsewhere. Court officials have asked that the trial be moved to Europe because of fears Taylor can still spark unrest in West Africa. Taylor, accused of backing a particularly brutal Sierra Leone rebel group, said through his lawyer that he feared for his safety in Sierra Leone, but wanted to be tried in the region, in part because it would be easier for defence witnesses to appear here. While most reporters watched on closed circuit TV from elsewhere in the complex, the audience area in the court chamber was filled with more than 100 people - among them Liberia's ambassador and members of Taylor's family. Taylor faces 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity in connection with alleged backing of Sierra Leonean rebels. He has repeatedly declared he is innocent of charges that include mutilation, sexual slavery and sending children into combat. Taylor won a disputed election in Liberia in 1997. Many former allies in an insurgency he had launched in 1989 took up arms against him in 2000 and attacked Monrovia in 2003.

Sierra Leone, a country that experienced one of the most brutish civil wars between 1991 and 2002, can offer answers at least to some of the myriad of accountability questions raised in transitional justice. After the war Sierra Leone established two institutions: a Truth and Reconciliation Commission (SLTRC) and the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL). The SLTRC assembled many perpetrators of atrocities during the war and victims of the same war, as well as those who created the sociological, political and economic environment that led to the war in the first place. The SCSL is a unique hybrid tribunal of local and international law, established to indict, prosecute, and convict those who bear 'greatest responsibility for war crimes' committed within the country during the period of the Sierra Leonean civil war. This presentation will look at the political, sociological as well as legal successes and challenges of the SLTRC and SCSL, discussing the ramifications of setting up those two mechanisms simultaneously and the financial implication of setting up the court. Following a 420 day trial, the Special Court for Sierra Leone in the Hague recently sentenced former Liberian President, Charles Taylor, to 50 years' jail for aiding and abetting crimes and atrocities that claimed 50,000 lives during the Sierra Leone civil war. He is the first head of state to be convicted by an international criminal tribunal since the Nuremberg trials. Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai is a lawyer by profession, whose only brother was abducted and killed by rebel forces when Sierra Leone exploded into civil war. In 2003, he established The Society for Democratic Initiatives (SDI) in Sierra Leone, a non-government organization working to entrench democratic governance and to protect and promote human rights. SDI plays a critical role towards democratic development in Sierra Leone given issues arising in the wake of a one-party governing system and a decade long civil war. Although the war officially ended in February 2002, socio-economic progress remains extraordinarily difficult to achieve in a political climate of corruption, harassment, violence and intimidation. Good governance by leaders with the interests of the common people at heart is the key to progress, and SDI's unflinching commitment to this goal increases the prospect that history does not ever repeat itself. During Sierra Leone's transition, Emmanuel worked at both the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Special Court for Sierra Leone.

SOUNDBITE (English) Arthur Saye, Charles Taylor's brother-in-law: "This is not transparent at all because this court should let President Taylor have access to his lawyers and his family members. Since we arrived here this evening, every effort that's been made by us to contact him, to talk to him, has failed. With this information coming out, we are afraid that this court is up to killing this man for no reason. They do not want for him to have his fair day in court because the three hour discussion this morning, during our discussion this morning, he said to me that he would never hire a defence team that is working for a special court." 5. Cutaway of journalist's hand 6. SOUNDBITE (English) Louise Edna Taylor-Carter, Charles Taylor's eldest sister: "If the special court is going to use this case as a test case for other people to follow, to send them to wherever they want to send them, they have to really take a straight line and make sure that everything is free and fair. If they are going to use him (Taylor) as the guinea pig and a test case, because the way it is going, it's not free and it's not fair." 7. Taylor-Carter standing up, shaking her head STORYLINE The family of Charles Taylor have spoken out against the UN court in Sierra Leone where the former Liberian president is due to appear on Monday to face war crimes charges. Speaking to reporters in Freetown, Taylor's family said the tribunal was foisting court lawyers on him and refusing him access to his Liberian and Ghanaian layers. Taylor's brother-in-law, Arthur Saye, said the family had also been denied access. "Since we arrived here this evening, every effort that's been made by us to contact him, to talk to him, has failed," he said. "We are afraid that this court is up to killing this man for no reason," he added. Louise Edna Taylor-Carter, Taylor's eldest sister, said the court was also refusing to allow relatives to watch Taylor's indictment on charges of crimes against humanity. "The way it is going, it's not free and it's not fair," she said of the way the court was operating. Taylor, who has repeatedly declared his innocence, is accused of backing Sierra Leonean rebels notorious for raping and maiming civilians by chopping off their arms, legs, ears and lips. UN officials say he faces 17 counts alleging war crimes, crimes against humanity and other serious violations committed during the country's 1991-2002 civil war. Each of the 17 charges he faces carries a life sentence. Liberian lawyers who say they will represent Taylor said they would argue for the case to be dismissed. Taylor fled to exile in Nigeria in August of 2003 - five months after his Special Court indictment - as part of a deal to end fighting in Liberia. Nigeria, under pressure from the United States and others, said last week it would hand over Taylor, but made no move to arrest him, and he fled. He was captured within a day, by Nigerian police who found him early on Wednesday trying to slip across the Nigerian-Cameroonian border.
