Justice in Africa?

Kevin Anderson | 15:23 UK time, Monday, 3 April 2006

The former president of Liberia, Charles Taylor, is appearing before a United Nations-backed war crimes court in Sierra Leone today, where he is due to give his plea to charges of crimes against humanity.

Will the impending trial of Mr Taylor set a precedent? Will it lead to other African leaders having to answer for crimes they stand accused of? And will it change the way the continent's leaders behave in future?
