Liberia’s Charles Taylor bid to move prison rejected

Share This Article on

A special court in Sierra Leone has rejected a bid by convicted former Liberian President Charles Taylor to be moved from a British prison citing coronavirus risk, AFP news agency reports.

 

Taylor had said the coronavirus pandemic in the UK was a big threat to his life and wanted to be moved to a “safe third country”, the agency reports.

The Residual Special Court for Sierra Leone said he had not specified which countries he considered safe.

The court added that the World Health Organization had not declared any country safe from Covid-19.

Taylor was sentenced to 50 years in prison by a UN-backed war crimes court at The Hague.

He was found guilty of aiding and abetting rebels in Sierra Leone during the 1991-2002 civil war.
