ALLEGED LEAK: LIBERIAN PRESIDENT JOSEPH BOAKAI’S DECEPTION ON WAR CRIMES COURT ESTABLISHMENT

Date:

MONROVIA – In a shocking revelation from reliable sources, Liberian President Joseph Nyuma Boakai has allegedly deceived American officials and the international community regarding the establishment of a War and Economic Crimes Court.

The former Vice President of Liberia had received widespread praise for publicly expressing his willingness to authorize the creation of the court, with both local and international human rights activists applauding his declaration.

However, recent developments have uncovered a possible scam by President Boakai, as reports suggest that his intentions to establish the court may not be genuine. Despite a swift resolution passed by the Liberian Legislature for the establishment of the court and subsequent forwarding to the Senate, Boakai’s Senate, which is reportedly dominated by his supporters, has sidelined the resolution in committee.

It has now been revealed that President Boakai has allegedly failed to take the necessary steps to initiate the court, including issuing an executive order and notifying the United Nations Secretary-General.

Citizens in Liberia are expressing suspicion and concern over the actions of the Liberian Senate regarding the establishment of a War Crimes Court in the country. The Senate recently received a resolution from the lower House of Representatives, but many fear that the Senate may attempt to suppress the establishment of the court.

According to some citizens, the Senate is filled with individuals with questionable characters who are afraid of facing prosecution themselves. They believe that certain members of the Senate are stained with corruption and other crimes, and are trying to prevent the establishment of the court to avoid going to jail.

One citizen expressed frustration with the Senate’s apparent procrastination in approving the resolution, stating, “So it was the same Senate that killed this War/Economic Crimes Court debate last time? We are watching them again! With that their two weeks committee room story.” This sentiment is in reference to previous reports that the Senate had hindered similar efforts during the administration of George Weah.

The citizen also questioned why Senator Dillon, who has been vocal about the need for a War Crimes Court, has not spoken out about the matter being stalled in the Senate. They warned that any attempts to block the establishment of the court would be exposed.

As tensions rise over the Senate’s handling of the resolution, many citizens are monitoring the situation closely and calling for transparency and accountability in the country’s justice system.
