Proceedings in the AFRC trial continued to move quickly this week, with the prosecution calling a further eight witnesses in its case against the three accused. The accused each attended the trial for the majority of the week, the only exception being the absence of Santigie Borbor Kanu (aka “Five-five”) due to ill health. The Chamber closed on Friday so that members of the Sierra Leonean bar could attend the bar council elections.
