I’m delighted to let you know that both Mr. Stephen Rapp, chief prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone, and Mr. Courtenay Griffiths, the lead defense counsel for Charles Taylor, have both agreed to do a “questions and answers” interview with us. Mr. Rapp has agreed to be interviewed this coming weekend, while Mr. Griffiths has agreed to be interviewed after Mr. Taylor has finished testifying.
We want to open up the floor to you, readers, to submit your questions for either or both Mr. Rapp and Mr. Griffiths. For Mr. Rapp, we will be taking questions right up until this Friday. (We will open up the floor to questions again for Mr. Griffiths closer to the time of his interview).
If you can post your questions in the comments section under this post, it will be much easier for us to track. Depending on how many questions we get, and how much time Mr. Rapp and Mr. Griffiths have available, we may have to choose a selection, but we will hope to try to get all questions answered to the extent it is humanly possible.
I know that some have already flagged questions: Noko4, for example, has asked two: 1. What role does the ACCORD played in this case? and 2. And why Pres. Kabbah is NOT on trial?
If there are other specific questions for the defense or the prosecution specifically that I have overlooked, please do alert me and we will add them to the list.
I look forward to seeing your questions.
