ADAMA DEMPSTER SPARKS HOPE FOR JUSTICE: CALLS FOR WAR AND ECONOMIC CRIMES COURT IN LIBERIA

Date:

MONROVIA – In a recent Facebook post, Adama K. Dempster, the Secretary General of the Civil Society Human Rights Advocacy Platform of Liberia, shared some exciting news from Freetown, Sierra Leone. According to Dempster, an impactful and experience-sharing conference took place at the Legacy Conference of the Special Court for Sierra Leone, marking 22 years of work in the region.

Dempster expressed optimism for justice in Liberia, stating, “Justice for Liberia is next… War and Economic Crimes Court for Liberia. Take note.” This statement suggests that there may be efforts underway to establish a similar court in Liberia, focusing on addressing war crimes and economic crimes.

The Legacy Conference of the Special Court for Sierra Leone serves as a significant milestone, showcasing the progress made in holding individuals accountable for their actions during times of conflict. It provides an opportunity for knowledge sharing and learning, as well as inspiring other nations, including Liberia, to pursue justice for past atrocities.

As of now, it remains to be seen how the pursuit of justice in Liberia will progress. However, Dempster’s post indicates that there is a growing momentum and determination within the civil society and human rights advocacy community to establish a War and Economic Crimes Court in Liberia.

This development could have far-reaching implications for Liberia, as it may pave the way for truth, justice, and reconciliation, creating a foundation for sustainable peace and healing. The establishment of such a court would signal a commitment to accountability and the protection of human rights.

It is important to note that this news story is based on the Facebook post shared by Adama K. Dempster. As more information becomes available, it will be crucial to closely monitor the progress of this initiative and the potential impact it may have on Liberia’s path towards justice and reconciliation.
