Calling Ramsey Clark

Charles Taylor is looking for a defense attorney.

FREETOWN (Reuters) - Former Liberian leader Charles Taylor is hunting for lawyers to defend him after pleading not guilty to war crimes at a U.N.-backed court in Sierra Leone, his advisors say.


Africa's most feared warlord pleaded innocent on Monday to 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity for his role backing rebels who raped and mutilated civilians and recruited child soldiers during Sierra Leone's 1991-2002 civil war.

From his heavily-guarded cell in the Special Court compound, nestled among the shanty-covered hills of the capital Freetown, Taylor has been receiving legal advisors from around the region but has yet to decide who should defend him, lawyers said.

Actually it is more likely Charles Taylor will be calling the 700 club and televangelist Pat Robertson to receive whatever blessings or influence Pat still has credible within the inner circles of etheral or Republican temporal power.
