The Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL) has convicted former Liberian President Charles Taylor for aiding and abetting and planning crimes against humanity, war crimes, and other serious violations of international law in 2003, in connection with some of the worst atrocities in Sierra Leone's civil war. This trial was an important step toward delivering justice and accountability for the victims in Sierra Leone, and restoring peace and stability in the country and the region.
