Amsterdam- Judges at an international in The Hague on Wednesday denied Liberian , Charles Taylor’s, request serve out the remainder of his 50-year sentence in Rwanda.

Taylor, 67 was convicted in 2012 of aiding and abetting war crimes and crimes against humanity during the 11-year civil war in Sierra , in which over 50,000 were killed.

More thousands of people were mutilated before the war ended in 2002.

Report says Taylor is serving his sentence in a British jail but has asked to be jailed in Rwanda, where his wife could visit him more easily.

He had argued that his wife’s failure to get a British visa represented an infringement on his human right to a family life. (Reuters/NAN)
