Super model Campbell’s testimony about war crimes is making news. Â Naomi Campbell, the super model took the witness stand inorder to talk about War Crimes in the tribunal The Hague, following charges filed against Liberian President Charles Taylor. Â The reason that she is in the news and has testified is because of several “dirty looking” diamonds she received from the warlord.
As it turns out, they were blood diamonds and as one media report states, it’s said that she’s proved that diamonds are not a girl’s best friend. The situation occurred in 1997, and involved someone who directed Nelson Mandela’s Children’s Charity named Jeremy Ractliffe. Â He alleges that he took the diamonds because he thought it would be illegal to take them out of the country.
The supermodel is extremely successful, and is known as one of the best supermodels of her generation Â To see her at a war crimes tribunal is unusual.
