CONCERNS MOUNT AS LIBERIAN SENATE FACES ACCUSATIONS OF BLOCKING WAR CRIMES COURT ESTABLISHMENT IN LIBERIA

Date:

MONROVIA,  LIBERIA – Citizens in Liberia are expressing suspicion and concern over the actions of the Liberian Senate regarding the establishment of a War and economic 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 Darius 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.
