DEFENSE MINISTRY ASSURES LIBERIANS OF GUARANTEE OF THEIR RIGHTS UNDER THE CONSTITUTION

Date:

LIBERIA – The Ministry of National Defense/Armed Forces of Liberia wishes to clarify to the general public and the International Community the statement made on December 6, 2022, on the need to observe the rule of law as citizens of Liberia and a reminder of the Constitutional Roles of the Armed Forces of Liberia as inscribed in the 2008 National Defense Act specifically Chapter 2, Section 2.3 (… the AFL shall intervene as a last resort when the threat exceeds the capacity of the law enforcement agencies..) was in no way a threat and misapplication of authority.

The Ministry of National Defense/Armed Forces of Liberia ardently assures the general public that the constitutional rights of all Liberians will be respected at all times and that there is no need to panic or query the apolitical standing of the current Armed Forces of Liberia. The Force remains a “Force for Good” and will at no time compromise such standing and constitutional responsibilities.

Furthermore, the Armed Forces of Liberia has instituted several measures and training into its setup to enhance its roles and professionalism before, during, and after the 2023 General Elections as was instituted in past elections and to subsequently support paramilitary institutions and other agencies of the National Government if necessary. It is important to note that sustaining democracy, peace, and tranquility is supreme to our ‘ Mission

We wish you all a Peaceful and Joyous  Festive Season.
