Naomi Campbell Will Testify at War Crimes Trial

Posted: Updated:

LONDON — Fashion model Naomi Campbell says she will testify at the war crimes trial of former Liberian president Charles Taylor.

Taylor is accused of supporting the rebels in Sierra Leone's 11-year civil war in exchange for diamonds and other natural resources. He denies trading in the so-called "blood diamonds."

Prosecutors at Taylor's trial in The Hague have summoned Campbell to testify later this month about reports that she received diamonds from Taylor during a 1997 reception in South Africa.

The Outside Organization, a public relations company that represents Campbell, announced on Friday that Campbell would testify. Her appearance is scheduled for July 29.
