Charles Taylor sits in Den Hague accused of Genocide against his own people and the people’s of Sierra Leone. So you might say they are ‘getting on with it’. An especially heartening situation given that the Head of State rule might well have halted any such moves but a few years ago.

On 1 July 2010, Campbell was summoned by the war crimes trial against Charles Taylor at the UN-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone in Leidschendam near The Hague to give evidence on receiving a “blood diamond”. Not appearing at the trial as summoned is punishable by up to 7 years in prison. Despite initially refusing to attend, Campbell was eventually subpoenaed and appeared as scheduled as a witness for the prosecution on 5 August 2010. In her testimony Campbell said she was given “dirty-looking” stones after a dinner attended by Charles Taylor which she was later told were likely to be diamonds. Campbell told the court that as far as she was concerned “blood diamonds” did not exist in 1997 (when she received the stones), alluding to the fact that the term was coined some years after 1997, after some African diamond-producing states and industry associations including the World Diamond Council and industry pressure groups along with the UN General Assembly established The Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) in 2000 to monitor world trade in conflict-free diamonds. The current location of the stones received by Campbell is disputed. Campbell said that she gave the stones to Jeremy Ratcliffe of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, because she wanted them to go to charity, and that Ratcliffe had told her in a 2009 phone conversation that he still had the stones. The Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund stated in a letter to the court that it had “never received a diamond or diamonds from Ms. Campbell or from anyone else. It would have been improper and illegal to have done so.”   However, the next day, the BBC reported that Ratcliffe changed his story to state that he did, in fact, receive the stones and has them in his possession, claiming that he is trying to insulate Mandela’s charity from suspicion.
To add to the above. As part of her testimony to the tribunal she stated that her attendance there was ‘A big inconvenience‘.
Campbell’s former Manager, and Mia Farrow
Anyone see the fellow that had his hands removed at the wrist, I’m certain he was inconvenienced.
