Charles Jalloh Interviewed by Al Jazeera Regarding Charles Taylor Trial

Professor Charles C. Jalloh was interviewed by Al Jazeera, the international TV news network, on August 5, 2010. He commented on the implications of the testimony given by British supermodel, Naomi Campbell, before the Special Court for Sierra Leone in The Hague on Thursday. Prosecutor’s had subpoenaed Campbell to testify whether she had received a gift of “blood diamonds” from former Liberian President Charles Taylor. Taylor is on trial for allegedly committing international crimes by trading weapons for diamonds during the Sierra Leonean conflict (1991-2002).  Campbell admitted to being woken up to receive a "pouch" of “dirty looking stones”. But she asserted she did not know who had sent them.
