Special Court continues in closed session

The trial of Charles Taylor before the Special Court for Sierra Leone continued in closed session this morning. The courtroom was locked with curtains drawn to hear the testimony of Prosecution witness, TF1-371.

We were informed by court personnel that the Prosecution was still conducting its direct examination of TF1-371, which began last Thursday afternoon. The Defense’s cross-examination was expected to begin at some point this afternoon, also in closed session, and continue until at least tomorrow. We will resume our live-blog when the court returns to open session.
