We have some very exciting news — In response to readers’ requests, the former Special Court prosecutor, David Crane, is willing to be interviewed and to answer your questions in relation to the Charles Taylor trial.
As many of you may already know, Mr. Crane was the first lead prosecutor at the Special Court and it was he who issued the original indictment for Mr. Taylor.
We’re now seeking your questions for him, a selection of which we will ask him during a phone interview currently planned for January 29. The cut-off time for posting your questions is 24 hours in advance of the interview, and we will post the interview on the site during the following week.
To be clear up front: we will apply the same rule to this interview that we apply to all our posts. That is, the questions need to focus on issues arising from Mr. Taylor’s trial, not on other readers (or in this case, Mr. Crane) as individuals. As always, we are trying to create a respectful space here for discussion and we ask all our readers to help contribute to that goal. So please note: We will only post comments, and ask Mr. Crane questions, which meet this criteria.
With that said, we warmly welcome your questions and look forward to seeing the issues you want to discuss with Mr. Crane.
Thanks so much to Mr. Crane for making himself available for us.
(Remember too, Mr. Taylor’s lead counsel, Courtenay Griffiths, has also agreed to answer readers’ questions when Mr. Taylor’s testimony is finished).
