FORMER AUDITOR GENERAL MORLU ACCUSES TOP LIBERIAN OFFICIALS OF DECEIT OVER WAR CRIMES COURT

Date:

MONROVIA – In a shocking revelation, former Liberian Auditor General John Morlu has accused top government officials, including President Joseph Boakai, Speaker Fonati Koffa, and Senate Pro Tempore Nyonblee Karngar, of being insincere about establishing a war and economic crimes court in Liberia. Morlu made these claims during a recent appearance on a local radio talk show, exposing what he believes to be a deceptive approach by the officials.

According to Morlu, the three high-ranking Liberian government officials are merely pretending to support the establishment of the court, without any genuine intention to follow through. He asserted that their initial actions were solely motivated by public pressure, rather than a sincere commitment to justice. Morlu emphasized that President Boakai, Speaker Koffa, and Protempore Karngar firmly believe that the court will never be established in Liberia, and their actions are merely a ploy to deceive the Liberian public.

During the radio interview, Morlu revealed a concerning detail that further supports his claims. He disclosed that a letter, which should have been sent from President Boakai to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, regarding the establishment of the court, remains untouched on the President’s desk. This revelation raises doubts about the officials’ true dedication to pursuing justice for war and economic crimes in Liberia.

The former Auditor General’s statements have sparked widespread concern among the public, as the establishment of a war and economic crimes court holds immense significance for the country. Liberia has a painful history of civil war, and the court’s establishment is seen as a crucial step towards accountability and healing.

In response to Morlu’s allegations, there has been a growing demand for transparency and genuine commitment from President Boakai, Speaker Koffa, and Protempore Karngar. Many citizens and civil society organizations are calling for immediate action to ensure that the court becomes a reality, rather than a mere political façade.

The revelations made by John Morlu highlight the urgent need for accountability in Liberia. The establishment of a war and economic crimes court is a vital step towards addressing the injustices of the past and fostering a culture of transparency and justice. It is now up to the Liberian government to address these concerns and demonstrate a genuine commitment to the establishment of the court, ensuring that justice is served for the victims and the nation as a whole.
