Charles Taylor Update.

Taylor boycotts war crimes trial

"I cannot participate in a charade that does no justice to the people of Liberia and Sierra Leone," Taylor said in a letter read by defence lawyer Karim Khan, who later walked out saying Taylor now wanted to conduct his own defence.

"I choose not to be a fig leaf of legitimacy for this court," Taylor said in the letter, complaining his defence lacked resources and he was not sure of a fair trial.

I have an alternate for Taylor, should he choose to refuse this trial. Leave him to his victims and their families to sort out.

There is a special place in hell for this man.

Isn't it funny that the people unsure of a fair trial are the people who can't buy their way out of a guilty verdict?

Maybe these sorts of people presume that others will behave as they do.
