    Wasn't aware one could boycott ones own war crimes trial? 8O
     
  2. Well you can certainly not agree to show up or make such a commotion in court that they keep you back in your cell in which case you get tried in absentina. That or they just tie you to the chair and gag you like they did to one guy back in the 70s in Chicago IIRC. :)
     
  3. The prisoner should be hauled in the dock and made to sit and listen to his crimes.

  4. But funny enough,Taylor sacked his lawyer ,opting to represent himself and when that lawyer attempted to exit the court, having been made redundant, he was severely reprimanded by the President/Chief Judge of the court for doing so. Should be an interesting trial.
     
  5. ...a straight jacket & a cattle prod should do the trick:)

    (is the tail wagging the dog or wot?)
