LIBERIAN GOVERNMENT AGREES TO HANDOVER ALLEGED SIERRA LEONEAN DISSIDENT

Date:

MONROVIA – The Government of Liberia has disclosed that it has taken a decision to remove from its territory the former Chief of Police of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Mr. Mohammed Y Toure – also known as “Sankoh Paul Alimamy” and “Yeate Yeate”.

Mr. Toure was apprehended in Monrovia by Liberian security forces at the request of the Sierra Leonean authorities on the allegation of helping plan subversive activities intended to unseat the Government of President Julius Maada Bio.

Following preliminary investigations in Liberia, and given the assurances of the Government of the Republic of Sierra Leone that the rights of the accused would be respected, including his rights to a free, fair and speedy trial, the Liberian Government states that it decided it was appropriate to hand over Mr. Toure to the Government of Sierra Leone as requested by the authorities in that country.

The government notes that Mohammed Toure’s handover to the Sierra Leonean Government is in keeping with the laws of Liberia and the 1986 Non-Aggression Security Treaty entered into by the Governments of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea.

It said the decision is also in line with the 1994 Ecowas Convention.
