Guilty as Charged: The rise and fall of Charles Taylor

The case against Charles Taylor was far from air-tight and international courts tend to mainly convict Africans, but for Sierra Leonean attorney Alpha Sesay, there’s no denying that those convicted deserve to be in the dock.

  • Alpha SESAY. Lawyer, The "Open Society Justice Initiative" (from The Hague);
  • Jonathan RANDAL. Journalist and writer. Former war correspondent, The Washington Post;
  • Alex VINES. Head of the Africa Programme, Chatham House.

Watch the second part here.

Produced by François Picard, Anelise Borges, Mary Colombel, Wassim Nasr, Pauline Heilmann.
