It is reported that Charles Taylor received CIA training and help during his reign. Him coming to power, is alleged, is as a result of external powers. Thursday groundbreaking judgment in the case of the former Liberian president Charles Taylor represents a milestone for both international justice and gender justice. The former president of Liberia was convicted by the special court for Sierra Leone of 11 counts of aiding and abetting war crimes and crimes against humanity, including rape and sexual slavery.

He was also convicted of the charge of enabling "outrages upon personal dignity", arising from incidents in which women and girls were forced to undress in public and then raped and sexually abused, "sometimes in full view of the public, and in full view of family members". In the conviction for terrorism too, the judges found that the raping of women and girls in public was part of the campaign aimed at terrorizing the civilian population.
