Shady!

Defense lawyers are opposing the prosecutors request to have Naomi Campbell testify in the war crimes trial against former Liberian President Charles Taylor.

They believe allowing Campbell, who allegedly received blood diamonds from the former President, to testify is "tangential to the real issues" 15 months into the trial.

One lawyer wrote to the judges "For the prosecution to present such inferential evidence at this advanced stage, as part of an obvious publicity stunt, would bring the administration of justice into serious disrepute."

Prosecutors still believe if Naomi testified, it would provide "direct evidence of the accused’s possession of rough diamonds from a witness unrelated to the Liberian or Sierra Leone conflicts.”

The judges have yet to make a decision on whether or not to bring Naomi in to testify.
