Liberia: Charles Taylor in court

Read the latest post from Charles Taylor's trial in the Hague: Taylor entered the courtroom in a dark blue suit with a bright yellow tie, nodded to the judges and sat, flanked by two uniformed guards. After being informed that the delay was due to the fact that the route from Taylor’s detention facilities had to be adjusted for security reasons, Judge Sebutinde stated that “the reason is noted but it is not satisfactory.” She therefore directed the Registry to communicate with security personnel to ”ensure that court time is not wasted because we are waiting for someone to transport Mr. Taylor to court.”
