Former Liberian President Charles Taylor Sentenced to 50 years by International Court

He will serve his sentence in Britain. This will be so, after a deal was struck between the UK and the International Court. There is fear that if he serves his sentence in Africa that may create new problems in his country by his supporters.
It is also due to the fact that many countries in Africa do not trust the International court and may help Taylor escape from an African jail.
He was accused of crimes against humanity.
