...for the authorities of the UN Special Court for Sierra Leone at The Hague who yielded to the model Naomi Campbell's demand for preferential treatment when she gave evidence about a “blood diamond” she may have received from the brutal former president of Liberia Charles Taylor who is being tried for war crimes.
