CONTROVERSY SURROUNDS REMOVAL OF MOSES CARTER AS POLICE SPOKESMAN BY INSPECTOR GENERAL

Date:

MONROVIA – Police Inspector General Gregory Coleman has officially announced the removal of Moses Carter from his position as Police Spokesman within the Liberian National Police (LNP), sparking controversy and allegations of political witch-hunting.

Inspector General Coleman disclosed this development during his appearance on Spoon Talk on Thursday, April 25, 2024, revealing that Carter will be reassigned to other duties within the LNP.

The decision to dismiss Carter, who was appointed during the administration of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) under former President George Manneh Weah, has sparked debate among critics of the ruling Unity Party. Some perceive the Inspector General’s move as politically driven and are advocating for a reassessment of the decision.

Carter’s tenure as Police Spokesman has been marked by his active engagement in communicating law enforcement updates and bridging the gap between the LNP and the public. His removal from this prominent role has raised questions about the motives behind the decision and its potential implications for the LNP’s communication strategy.

Critics argue that Carter’s removal may be an attempt to silence dissent or suppress information, especially considering his association with the previous administration. They caution that such actions could undermine public trust in the police force and exacerbate tensions within the country.

As calls for a reconsideration of the decision grow louder, all eyes are on Inspector General Coleman and the Liberian National Police to address concerns surrounding Carter’s removal and ensure transparency and accountability in their operations. The controversy surrounding this development underscores the delicate balance between political considerations and the independence of law enforcement agencies in Liberia.
