MONROVIA, LIBERIA-A former Liberian rebel commander is appealing a twenty-three year jail sentence for war crimes, including rape, murder and cannibalism.
The prosecution has added the charge of crimes against humanity in the case of Alieu Kosiah, whose trial has opened in Switzerland.
Several witnesses have travelled to the Country to testify, including a man who has alleged that he saw Alieu Kosiah eating human heart.
Kosiah was found guilty of war crimes in 2021, the first case of its kind in Switzerland.
Hundreds of people were killed and mutilated during Liberia’s multiple civil wars which lasted from 1998-2003.
