Motion text

That this House notes that the Special Court for Sierra Leone has indicated President Charles Taylor of Liberia for 'bearing the greatest responsibility' for war crimes, crimes against humanity and serious violations of international humanitarian law within the territory of Sierra Leone since November 1996; further notes that UN Security Council Resolution 1470 clearly calls upon all states to assist the Special Court; expresses concern that President Taylor has travelled outside of Liberia since he became a wanted war criminal but that the Ghanaian authorities failed to arrest him; further notes with concern that the Government made no public efforts to exert pressure on the Ghanaian authorities to arrest a wanted war criminal; and calls upon the Government to make every possible effort in future to support the Special Court for Sierra Leone to ensure that the people of Sierra Leone see those who bear the most responsibility for war crimes in their country held accountable to the rule of law.
