Liberian Ex-President and War Criminal Demands Presidential Salary

Charles Taylor says that to not grant him $25,000 a year would be a "mammoth injustice"

Liberia's jailed ex-President and war criminal Charles Taylor appears to have written to MPs demanding an annual state pension of $25,000 (£15,600).

Liberian Senate Secretary Nanborloh Singbeh said the letter would be discussed by MPs next week.

The letter purportedly from Taylor says the withholding of his presidential pension is a "mammoth injustice".
