Temperamental model Naomi Campbell has been subpoenaed to testify in the war crimes trial of ex-Liberian president Charles Taylor, says The Associated Press. The diva has continued to refuse to testify, but now she has to, since prosecutors in the case claim that in 1997, Campbell received a rough diamond from Taylor at a celebrity reception. Taylor claims he never possessed any rough diamonds and the fact that he gifted Campbell with one is proof that he is lying.
Taylor is charged with supporting rebels in Sierra Leone's civil war in exchange for diamonds and other natural wealth. He is charged with 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity. No wonder Campbell wants nothing to do with this case, because it could get her in even bigger trouble if she does open her mouth, but she certainly needs to do the right thing.
What is your opinion on Campbell's bad behavior towards testifying?
