NETHERLANDS-LIBERIA-SIERRALEONE-TSSL-TAYLOR

Presiding Judge Shireen Fisher (top, 3rd R) and other unidentified judges wait on January 22, 2013 for the start of the appeal hearing of former Liberian President Charles Taylor before Sierra Leone's UN-backed special court in Leidschendam, The Netherlands. The former Liberian warlord began his appeal at the Special Court for Sierre Leone's against his 50-year prison sentence for fuelling the west African nation's savage civil war. Appeals judges are to hear arguments from prosecutors demanding a heavier sentence and from the former strongman's lawyers calling for his 50-year sentence to be quashed or reduced. Judges said he aided and abetted rebel forces fighting against Freetown during Sierra Leone's 10-year civil war, known for its mutilations, drugged child soldiers and sex slaves.
