LIBERIA: PRESIDENT’S PRESS SECRETARY EMPHASIZES BROADER SCOPE OF WAR AND ECONOMIC CRIMES COURT

Date:

MONROVIA – Kula Fofana, press secretary to President Joseph Boakai, addressed concerns regarding the President’s vision for the establishment of a war and economic crimes court, emphasizing that it is not targeted at any specific individual but is part of a broader discussion on accountability.

During an appearance on Liberia’s national broadcaster, ELBC, Fofana clarified that the proposed court is not intended to single out any particular person or group. She stated, “The President’s vision for the war and economic crimes court is not targeting a particular individual or group, but is part of a broader discussion which emphasizes accountability for past actions.”

Fofana highlighted that even influential figures such as Prince Johnson have expressed their willingness to support the establishment of the court, indicating a broad consensus on the need for accountability. She emphasized that the new Liberian leadership is committed to ensuring that the court serves the interests of justice and accountability for all, without bias or prejudice.

The press secretary’s remarks come amidst ongoing discussions and debates surrounding the establishment of the War and Economic Crimes Court in Liberia. The issue has been a subject of intense public interest and scrutiny, with many stakeholders expressing varied opinions on its scope and purpose.

Fofana’s statement seeks to reassure the public that the government’s pursuit of the court is driven by a committed War and Economic Crimes Court to justice and accountability, rather than targeting specific individuals or groups. As the debate on the court continues, her comments are likely to contribute to shaping the narrative around the President’s vision for addressing past atrocities and economic crimes in Liberia.
