Charles Jalloh Asks: Where is the Judgment in the Charles Taylor Case?
Assistant Professor Charles C. Jalloh, a monthly columnist on international criminal justice issues for JURIST Legal News and Research, has written Charles Taylor and the Delayed Special Court for Sierra Leone Judgment. He urges the Sierra Leone Tribunal to announce a firm date for delivery of the long awaited judgment in the trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor. The Prosecutor v. Charles Ghankay Taylor is the last of that ad hoc court’s nine cases, and one of the most important trials in international criminal law. The piece is available here.
Professor Jalloh's first column predicted the deportation from Canada of alleged Rwandan genocidaire, Léon Mugesera, who is now facing trial in his native country.
