Naomi Campbell New York, Aug 6 (ANI): Naomi Campbell wants to get war crimes tribunal ‘to get over with’ and get on with her life.

Speaking at the the trial to determine whether Liberian strongman Charles Taylor funded a civil war in Sierra Leone with ‘blood diamonds’, the supermodel said that she has had enough of courtrooms and testimonies.

“I just want to get this over with and get on with my life,” The New York Daily News quoted her as saying.

In Campbell’s case, it means resuming a luxurious yacht cruise with her married billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin, according to insiders.

Doronin’s 13-year-old daughter, Katia, will also join the couple as they sail to Sardinia, Sicily and Ibiza.

Campbell claimed she didn’t know whether the “dirty-looking pebbles” given to her by two men.

“I don’t know anything about Charles Taylor, never heard of him before, never heard of the country Liberia before,” Campbell said of the Liberian president, who faces charges of murder, rape, recruiting child soldiers and sexual enslavement.

She also insisted she has never heard of the term ‘blood diamonds’ and said she’d handed over them to Jeremy Ratcliffe, the then director of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund.

But the charity has stated it never received the diamonds Campbell said she gave to its former head.

Prosecutor Brenda Hollis asked the supermodel, “Isn’t it correct that your account today isn’t entirely truthful?”

But Campbell replied, “No, that’s not correct.” (ANI)
