Blood Diamond Naomi Could Face Jail Time If She Was Indeed Lying About The “Little Dirty Pebbles”

- By Bossip Staff

Poor thang:

Naomi Campbell says she has nothing to gain by lying in her testimony about alleged “blood diamonds.” But according to London’s Telegraph , she could have everything to lose, including her freedom.

The supermodel may face charges for possessing illegal uncut diamonds in South Africa. Penalties could range from a large fine to 10 years behind bars for frequent offenders. Legal experts also suggest the British beauty could face up to two years in jail if the court rules Campbell lied under oath.

Campbell, 40, testified at the war crimes tribunal of former Liberian President Charles Taylor last week. She admitted she was given “dirty looking stones” by two men who showed up at her door following a 1997 dinner in South Africa, hosted by then-President Nelson Mandela, where Taylor was an attendee.

But she contends she did not know the stones were blood diamonds or that they were from Taylor himself. Campbell said she gave them to a South African charity the next day. Taylor is under investigation for allegedly swapping weapons for illegally mined diamonds with rebels in Sierra Leone, which were used to kill thousands of people during that nation’s civil war from 1992 to 2002. Taylor has repeatedly denied trading for “blood diamonds” to finance the bloody conflict.

Damn.

  • Naomi's Blackberry

    Naomi is a LIE and should be ashamed. Just thinking of the senseless killings, and villiages, families, and childrens lives that were negatively effected due to that diamond makes me sick to my stomach. =(

  • sunflower

    I can’t imagine Naomi in prison.

  • truth hurts huh ?

    She deserves to go to jail and for a long time. Shes a liar and she’s dangerous for others human beings : yes she can hurt you, hurt your body for no reason and take diamonds from your dead corpse… Just for one thing : to shine.
    She’s a shame, thanks God we have Iman and others. Naomi is the only one who has done nothing good for black woman or for her own life.

  • TT

    THIS ARTICLE IS A LIE… STOP TRYING TO REPORT THE NEWS CAUSE YOU GUYS REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT YOU`RE TALKINGA ABOUT.. YOU FOOLS

  • John

    WHOAH…. Where do I begin, the Hague is not in America…. This has nothing to do with American racism. Naomi lied she is a fool and may face prison time.

  • MsRachael

    Okay if she REALLY thought they were dirty little stones then why did she turn around and give them to a charity? What charity needs little dirty rocks? And if at any time she realized they were diamonds- why didn’t she give them to police? If they were dirty than she surely must have realized something was wrong.

  • John

    ha ha your name is appropriate as perjury is a crime in most jurisdictions, it is a crime at the Hague. As such it is punishable by two years in prison. Wow dude its clear you are neither jurist nor student of the law…You should not speak on things you know nothing of, that way you won’t look foolish when someone is able to contradict you with facts and sources.

  • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983

    Okay I have a question: If she didn’t know what they were why keep them AND give them to a charity? If someone gave me something that looked like dirty rocks or pebbles I probably would have thrown them in the trash thinking that they were just that…rocks. Like what “normal” would look at rocks or pebbles as a gift. I am so tired of these celebs and folks on that type of status acting like they are so oblivious to things that are going on. What would make someone give pebbles to a charity??

  • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983

    @ Ms.Rachel…I see that we feel the same because that is the same thing I am thinking. Am I missing something here??

  • Tracey

    The white man has been stealing Africa’s diamonds for centuries, and been providing weapons for them, not one of those punks have ever been convicted yet, and they want to get Niaomi on a technicality of if she received a diamond or a dirty looking pebble, seriously I think the world is filled with complete idoits who are limited in their minds.

  • auntdoggandauntfail

    Thank you @Tracey devils!!

  • krakatoa

    Rubbish. No one gets done for perjury simply because other witnesses contradict them.

  • Curious1

    @ John….dude..keep up..This is NOT the first article post on this story…

    I’ve said my piece about this on the first one…Naomi is lying…we all know that…

    and yes…the two can exist simultaneously…

  • John

    what kills me about people like yourself is that you never want to take responsibility for your actions, and you do not want other black folk to be held accountable either. Its not the fault of the white man anymore, yeah there is still racism in this country, but we can rise above it. But we cannot do it looking over our shoulders and blaming everyone else and thinking that we do not have to be held accountable for our actions.

  • ha ha

    Taken from the Daily Telegraph

    The penalty for lying to the UN’s Special Court for Sierra Leone, where Mr Taylor is being tried for 11 counts of war crimes is a fine and up to two years in jail.

    But a court official told The Daily Telegraph that penalties for perjury were not applied as a rule but that UN judges would discount discredited testimony.

    “We probably do not want to drag someone here and put them in prison,” said the official.

    “So far in trials ‘this is the fourth’ I have not seen the penalty applied. When you look at judgments you can sometimes see that certain witnesses are not taken into account.”

    So clearly John you’re an idiot just like I said…

    whatever John you’re dumb
