Taylor appears at war crimes trial
by UPI

THE HAGUE, Netherlands -- Former Liberian President Charles Taylor pleaded innocent to sexual slavery and rape at his war crimes trial at The Hague in the Netherlands Wednesday.

Before Wednesday, Taylor had boycotted the war crimes proceeding, saying it was unfair, the BBC reported.

Taylor faces a list of charges, including murder, crimes against humanity, acts of terrorism and enslavement related to his alleged support of rebels in Sierra Leone who killed thousands of civilians. The new charges were reworded, the BBC reported.

Taylor has denied all the charges.

A judge delayed the trial until Aug. 20 because Taylor fired his defense lawyer.

A Special Court for Sierra Leone is hearing the case in The Hague to avoid raising tensions in the African nation.
