The former Liberian President Charles Taylor is worried about his safety once he transfers to Britain to serve his sentence for war crimes, according to new documents released by his lawyers.

Taylor  told prison officials in The Hague that he objects to changes in his living conditions.

Taylor, 65, was arrested by the Special Court for Sierra Leone and sent to The Hague in 2006. He received a 50-year term for sponsoring atrocities committed by the Revolutionary United Front rebels.
