MONROVIA – Smart News Liberia reported some two months ago that the former head of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Mr. Jerome Verdier was leaving his hideout in Kenya and headed for the United States. While in the United States, the former TRC boss testified before the US Congress for the imposition of sanctions on the Government of the Republic of Liberia, writes Sheikh O Jalloh.
According to information gathered from our Washington sources, there are about 200 (two hundred) names being currently varified by some 29 (twenty nine) War and Economic Crimes investigators that had visited Liberia on several occasions from the era of former Pres. Samuel Doe up to present. The atrocities committed and recorded from the Doe era up to the Weah’s CDC-led government has been concluded but the technical details are slowly being worked out.
The Travel Ban and Assets Freeze in similar style like that of the Charles Taylor era. Names as far back as the Doe era is on the list. The head of Project Liberia in the States was recently removed from the Liberian desk for his continued plead for sympathy on those being investigated due to his ongoing ties with Liberia. He has been appointed head of the Gambia Desk in an effort to bring the former President of the Gambia, Yaya Jammeh to Justice.
It is also believed that an international corporate institution operating in Liberia is sponsoring the sanctions regime against Pres. Weah’s CDC-led government. Unfortunately, for the Weah’s CDC-led government, it is going down a slippery slop at a uncontrollable pace and sooner than later it will hit rock bottom.
According to one of the investigators on the Liberian project, all United States citizens that are currently working in the Weah CDC-led government, names will be automatically placed on the sanctions list. Some of the names mentioned were Todd Garlo, Piso Saydee, Mawannie Diggs, Gerlad Smith, Prince Woods, Jones Blamo, Jerome Korkoya, Sam Joe and the list goes on.
The choice to make Liberia great again lies in the preview of the Liberian President. The establishment of the War and Economic Crimes Court is not going away anytime soon. The President of the Republic of Liberia either establishes the War and Economic Crimes Court or suffered similar fate of that of Charles Taylor and Samuel Doe.
What is currently happening in Liberia is stage manage, particularly to destroy the economy of the Republic of Liberia allowing the population to rise up against the President and his CDC led government. Unfortunately for the President of the Republic of Liberia, Mr. George Manneh Weah, his heart is hardened in the support of those who committed heinous crimes against humanity and stole millions of the Republic money that is being kept in foreign banks.
A few days ago the United States Department of State released yet another damning report on the Weah CDC led government citing massive corruption, impunity, censorship and harassment of the press.
