So you are called to give evidence in a war crimes trial. You go and then protest on the stand that being present is a ‘terrible inconvenience’ for you. Tens of thousands have died and a third of the population displaced, and you feel ‘inconvenienced.’ I know that Naomi is a model, but I am shocked at her level of callous self-involvement.
I also don’t believe her account that she did not know who the uncut diamonds were from. Her testimony simply did not look credible. Enter Mia Farrow who directly contradicts Campbell’s account. Who else did you flirt with the party? There are those who are of the view that the ICC is a waste of time. Well, if Campbell is of that view, she should have said so. It would have been preferable to her cowardly testimony, attempting unsuccessfully, to distance herself from the entire affair.
Even if the ICC is an imperfect solution, what do you do with people like Charles Taylor?
