The UN Security Council on Thursday unanimously adopted a resolution requesting the withdrawal of the UN mission in Liberia (UNMIL)'s military personnel providing security for the Special Court for Sierra Leone.

The resolution requests the withdrawal of the military personnel by March 7.

Referring to a letter received by the Special Court, the resolution notes that "the UNMIL military guard force would no longer be required beyond February 2011, and the request by the government of Sierra Leone that withdrawal be postponed to late February or early March."

Jointly established by the government of Sierra Leone and the United Nations, the Special Court for Sierra Leone is tasked with trying cases of violations of international law committed in Sierra Leone's brutal civil war since Nov. 30, 1996.
