Justice not done for Sierra Leone war victims – Says Liberian Rights Activist

London (AFP) – Liberian rights activist and Nobel laureate Leymah Gbowee on Friday called for former president Charles Taylor's assets to be sold off to help the victims of Sierra Leone's civil war.

"Justice will finally be served if all of his assets are sold off and some of the proceeds given to these people," Gbowee said at "Women in the World", a forum organised by British-American journalist Tina Brown.

Gbowee won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011 for leading a women's movement in Liberia that demanded an end to the brutal 1991-2002 war that left tens of thousands dead. READ MORE OF THIS STORY ON YAHOO NEWS
