LIBERIA: VP KOUNG MEETS US DELEGATION FOR GLOBAL CRIMINAL JUSTICE: SAYS JUSTICE SHOULD BE IMPARTIAL

Date:

MONROVIA Liberia’s Vice President Jeremiah Kpan Koung on today,  March 5, 2024, received the United States delegation for Global Criminal Justice headed by Ambassador-At-Large Her Excellency Beth Van Schaack at his office on Capitol Hill.

The meeting, according to a release from the office of the Vice President, focused on the progress being made in the establishment of the War and Economic Crimes Court in Liberia.

The delegation expressed satisfaction with Liberia’s peaceful transfer of power and improvement of its democratic credentials.

Madam Schaack referred to President Boakai’s commitment to the establishment of the War and Economic Crimes Court for Liberia in his inaugural address, a statement that she believes resonates with the United States agenda to support Liberia in strengthening the rule of law and eliminating the culture of impunity.

“The court will prosecute major cases based on the gravity of offenses; using Sierra Leone as an inference where nine (9) individuals were prosecuted. The United States Government remains supportive in providing technical and financial assistance for the establishment of the court”, Madam Schaack revealed.

In his response, Vice President Koung welcomed the US delegation to Liberia and expressed gratitude to the US Government for its continuous support of peace, stability, and national development.

The Vice President emphasized that President Boakai is the Chief Architect of Liberia’s Foreign Policy and is prepared to follow the lead of the President in the interest of the Liberian people.

“I believe in the vision and wisdom of President Boakai and am deeply committed to supporting his agenda for Liberia”, VP Koung told the US delegation.

The Liberian Vice President also stressed that prosecution should be impartial and consultations should be broad-based to avoid selective justice.

The US delegation for Global Criminal Justice is also expected to hold discussions with His Excellency President Joseph Nyuma Boakai, Sr, President of the Republic of Liberia, and top officials of Government and Civil Society organizations.
