Soldier Asked Naomi Campbell to Apologize for Comment


Naomi Campbell


The supermodel said her testimony on the trial of Charles Taylor was a big inconvenience, much to the dismay of Kabba Williams whose mother died in the civil war.

Naomi Campbell has been urged by a former child soldier to apologize for branding her appearance at the trial of ex-Liberian President Charles Taylor "a big inconvenience". The supermodel took to the stand in The Hague, Netherlands earlier this month to give evidence in Taylor's war crimes trial.

He is alleged to have given Campbell blood diamonds - illicit gems sold to finance conflicts - after a dinner party at Nelson Mandela's home in South Africa in 1997. During her testimony, Campbell explained to the courtroom how she had been forced to testify, telling the judge: "This is a big inconvenience for me."

The comments sparked outrage, and now Kabba Williams - who was forced onto the battlefield after his mother was killed - has blasted the supermodel for her comments. The 25 year old tells Britain's Sunday Mirror, "She should be ashamed. It is more than inconvenient for the thousands wiped out and those tortured, raped or burned to death."

Taylor is accused of using blood diamonds to fund Sierra Leone's 1991-2002 civil war. He has pleaded not guilty to 11 charges.
