Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the rule 58 of the Rules of Procedure and Evidence of the statute of the Special Court of Sierra Leone. It discusses two cases and their trial chambers decisions. The first case is of Prosecutor v. Taylor, Warrant of Arrest and Order for Transfer and Detention, 7 March 2003. The Accused argues that the Indictment, the Warrant of Arrest and all other consequential Orders issued against him by the Special Court are in violation of the principle that a State may not exercise its authority on the territory of another State and the principle of sovereign equality among all Member States of the United Nations as laid down in Article 2, paragraph 1 of the Charter of the United Nations.
