While she was celebrating herself at London Fashion Week (she's been doing that all important modelling job for 25 years now), Naomi took the time to air the following regarding her involvement in the trial of former Liberian President Charles Taylor in the Hague a few weeks back:
"What you have to understand is, I was not on trial. I was forced by subpoena to testify. It was nothing to do with me. This trial has been going on for how many years and no-one cared to write about it? You bring Naomi Campbell to the stand and the whole world knows. So as far as I was concerned, I was used as a scapegoat... I told and remembered what I could to the best of my ability - it was 13 years ago. I do not think what he did to his people is correct, I didn't condone that and I will never condone that. And I don't see why I should sit here, or wherever I go around the world, as if this was my trial. I was a witness."
She has a point. But it'd be nice if she saw the positive in the fact that she personally brought the incomprehensibly horrific crimes of Charles Taylor to the entire planet's attention...
But back to what Naomi Campbell would prefer to be known for right now - FASHION!
