We just found out today that the Charles Taylor trial is now in recess until October 26 — but just because the courtroom action has stopped, it does not mean that we have to end our conversations here on this site for three weeks.
Alpha and I thought this would be a great opportunity to invite readers to ask questions about issues arising from the trial to date — legal issues, procedural issues, anything you want, really, in relation to the trial — Alpha and I will do our best to get answers to you.
We already have a couple of questions which we are working on – Noko4 has asked about the Liberian travel bans and John Thompson has asked about the relationship between prosecutors, witnesses and the truth.
If there are others which are new or which we have overlooked previously, please let us know. We will aim to answer and keep posting throughout this recess period as much as we can.
We look forward to hearing from you.
Alpha and Tracey
