FILE - In this April 3, 2006 file photo, former Liberian President Charles Taylor makes his first appearance at the Special Court in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Charles Taylor may be locked up while appealing his 50-year prison sentence for war crimes, but the former Liberian president still wants his impoverished country to pay his pension. The 64-year-old who was once one of West Africa's most powerful figures has written Liberia's Senate seeking at least $25,000 per year in retirement pay he insists he's owed under the constitution.
