my hope in the international justice system is (remporarily) restored
What brought about this unpredictable turn of events?
Monday, the justices of the Special Court for Sierra Leone at The Hague refused to acquit former Liberian president/dictator/warlord/all-around nasty guy Charles Taylor on war crimes charges, that's what.
Not that they've shown they'll be able to convict him, either, which is why my faith in the international justice system is only temporarily restored to fragile hope. The next stage of the trial begins on June 29. Any readers care to share the view from Liberia on this one?
