    (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...

(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.

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.

"Ebola is spreading at the rate of five new cases an hour in Sierra Leone, according to figures released as world leaders and experts on disease control gathered in London to discuss the outbreak. The figures from Save the Children showed there were 765 new cases last week in the west African country alone, but only 327 hospital beds to treat infected patients."* The spread of Ebola in western Africa is becoming enormous- Save the Children is reporting 5 people an hour becoming infected, and that could soon double. How is the spread now different from how it began? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss. *Read more from The Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/oct/02/ebola-infecting-five-every-hour-sierra-leone

Short Q&A with Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai, founder of the Society for Democratic Initiatives in Sierra Leone on The Success and Challenges of Transitional Justice in Sierra Leone. In this brief interview, Emmanuel discusses how the Special Court for Sierra Leone used evidence from the Truth & Reconciliation Commission. He explains how the international community influenced the Special Court for Sierra Leone since civilians had first wanted to let go and move on. Emmanuel also discusses the reaction in Sierra Leone to the conviction of Charles Taylor by the international crime court, and how this increased the tension between Liberia and Sierra Leone. Emmanuel provides his opinion on giving amnesty to those who testified in the Truth & Reconciliation commission, that giving amnesty brought about peace from the rebels. He considers whether the resources spent on prosecuting and defending those involved in the conflict would be better spent on economic problems but concludes that justice, although intangible, is a necessary step in allowing the country to move on. Emmanuel says that commemoration is more important than money handouts for civilians because it will again assist in bringing unity to the country which is vital in going forward. The Q&A was filmed when Emmanuel spoke at the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law on 1 August 2012 in Melbourne, Australia.
