Sierra Leone military judge: no photography in the courtroom

The military judge presiding over a long-running Sierra Leone court-martial has cautioned the media not to take photos of the proceedings. Details here. “When you look at the photo in the newspaper, it seems as if the accused are in a cave and seem to be under massive pressure and it is sending a bad signal.” “As you can see, the accused are not under pressure at all. They are well seated and presumed to be innocent unless the Court proves them otherwise based on what the prosecution have as evidence.”
