Sample Advocacy Letter: Request for the Extradition of Charles Taylor
8/10/2004 4:10 PM


Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia, has been indicted on seventeen counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity by the Special Court for Sierra Leone.  The charges against Mr. Taylor include the most serious human rights abuses: killings, torture, mutilation, rape and other forms of sexual violence, sexual slavery, conscription of children, abduction and forced labor perpetuated by Sierra Leonean rebel forces that Mr. Taylor actively supported.  Yet, even though trials have begun at the Special Court for Sierra Leone, Mr. Taylor remains in Nigeria, immune from justice.  Take action to ensure that Mr. Taylor stands trial.
