Justice Teresa Doherty will convene a sentencing hearing in Freetown at 9:00 a.m. Friday for four ex-AFRC officials convicted on contempt charges relating to attempting to bribe and/or otherwise induce prosecution witnesses to recant testimony (say the testimony was untrue) given in the AFRC trial.
Two of those convicted, Hassan Papa Bangura (“Bomblast”) and Samuel Kargbo (“Sammy Ragga”) will participate in Freetown. The other two, Ibrahim Bazzy Kamara and Santigie Borbor Kanu (“Five-Five”) will participate via VTC video link from Rwanda, where they are serving their prison sentences on convictions for war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The media and public are invited to view the oral arguments in Courtroom 1 at the Special Court.
