  • 29-05-2018


    A former Sierra Leonean militia leader has walked out of prison after a 15-year sentence for his role in Sierra Leone’s civil war.
    Moinina Fofana was the leader of a notorious paramilitary unit that shot, hacked and burned to death civilians suspected of collaborating with rebels during the 1991 to 2002 conflict in the country.
    He was convicted in 2007 by the UN backed special court for Sierra Leone that investigated the conflict that killed more than 100 000 people.
    The spokesman for the special court, Peter Anderson, spoke to WADR more about the release of Mr Moinina Fofana.
