UK donates £1 million to Special Court for Sierra Leone
As part of support for Sierra Leone’s post-conflict recovery efforts, the UK government has provided a further £1 million to the Special Court for Sierra Leone. The grant will help the Court conclude the Charles Taylor trial in The Hague (which moves to closing arguments this week) and to move to residual functions in Sierra Leone quickly and efficiently; leaving a positive judicial legacy in the country.
With long standing historical links and as a leading partner in Sierra Leone’s post-conflict recovery efforts, the UK government is committed to helping the country recover from its turbulent past, which the Special Court for Sierra Leone has played a major role to deliver. In conjunction with the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) findings, the success of the Special Court will help Sierra Leone establish itself as a peaceful, democratic and successful country.
