Well, she didn't say much. I'd hoped for more. This is all you got and you didn't testify before now? Good grief woman, how selfish.

So you're afraid of Charles Taylor? How do you expect the people who suffered under the regime and yet are testifying now to get the truth out feel. YOu have money, power, wealth, etc....you could have spared us all the drama and just told your story a year ago.

Thanks for nothing you selfish, self-absorbed whatsit.

Yeah It's selfish to fear for ones safety from a Genocidal Murderer. Just because she's rich she should not fear for her life? You can't be serious...

As long as there is a cell phone within reach, Naomi will be just fine.

Not to mention dumb.
Get out of it fearing for her life - her boyfriends a Russian billionaire not some pastor. He has contacts. Wise up. She's OK - this is just sub standard melodrama.

Should Taylor be found guilty, I hope they can locate a stashed fortune to distribute amongst the maimed. Our barbarity never ceases to amaze and dispirit me.

How anyone of any race could be reluctant to get the truth out about this guy is beyond me. This incident further tarnishes your reputation Naomi. Just think of how the public would have supported you if you had been forthcoming. By being resistant you have reinforced the image the world has of you. Self-centered, self-indulgent selfish.

Seriously! I'm fu_rious about this. And she hardly said anything. If this was all she had to say, why be so reluctant.
Many who suffered directly under Taylor are testifying and have a lot more to fear than she does. How dare she say she was afraid to come forward. Pah!

How can you make a statement such as this? It defiles logic. She was never friends with Taylor, they just happened to have been attending the same event. She was asleep when some men gave her the gift, she never solicited for it. Fine she accepted without getting to the bottom of it but does that make her evil? The prosecutors should really hang their heads in shame as this indirect transaction between Naomi and Taylor does not substantiate the fact that he was a war lord who traded in blood diamonds, as a matter of fact, monies were never exchanged so nothing was traded in return for anything. There are millions of more credible witnesses and evidence of his crimes out there. This exercise was purely to glamourise the whole event and put them in the spotlight. Utter nonsense!

Maybe so. But she could have given her cooperation. She's the one who made it a big show. I hadn't even heard about this until today.
