Charles Taylor’s former vice president, Moses Blah, to testify in May?

The press office of the Special Court for Sierra Leone has told that according to Chief Prosecutor Stephen Rapp, it appears that Charles Taylor’s former vice president (and immediate successor as president), Moses Blah, will testify sometime next month.  The prosecution had issued a subpoena to Blah to testify on April 14, but Blah requested more time to respond to the subpoena due to health considerations and his wife’s current absence from Liberia.  As it stands now, Blah is expected to testify sometime in May.

According to media reports, Blah is expected to serve as a fact witness and testify about the death of former Revolutionary United Front commander Sam Bockarie.
