International Criminal Court

Volume 450: debated on Thursday 12 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what the current status of the trial of John Taylor is before the International Criminal Court. (92332)

Charles Taylor is currently awaiting trial before a specially convened trial chamber of the Special Court for Sierra Leone, which will sit in The Hague because of the unacceptably high security risks of holding and trying Taylor in Freetown. The Special Court has set a likely start date for the trial of 2 April 2007.
