INTER-RELIGIOUS COUNCIL PROBES VIOLENCE IN JAN 6 PROTEST

Date:

The Inter-Religious Council Of Liberia has said it is a constitutional right to peaceful assembly but turning out violent is totally unacceptable and can’t be compromised.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Smart News, the Secretary General of the Inter-Religious Council, Att. Musa Bamba said the council is investigating the violence that occurred during the Council of Patriots’ January 6 protest assembly.

S.G Bamba averred that anyone or group that wants to assembly or protest should do it within the confines of the law by getting a permit from the national government, and be responsible for their actions in case of harm or destruction of properties.

Att. Bamba lamented that the Inter-Religious council is doing all within its power to ascertain who was responsible for the violence that erupted curing the COP protest.

He added that it is the responsibility of the government to provide protection for the protesters since they have given them permit.

Secretary Bamba indicated that they had meetings with the COP and asked them not to call the president to step down but their counts were genuine and they could go a head with the protest if the government permits them.

Att. Bamba narrated that the findings from their investigation will not be disclosed to the public but will be settled with both parties.
