Liberia: STAND Commends Pres. Boakai …Urges Him to Write the UN SG to Speed up War & Economic Crimes Court Establishment Process

53

President Joseph Nyuma Boakai signed and issued Executive Order 131, establishing an office for the War and Economic Crimes Court.
This office, according to the Executive Order, will work with “the international community in the formulation of the mechanisms, procedures, and processes attending the establishment of a war crimes court and an anti-corruption court for Liberia’.
As an unflinching supporter of this effort, STAND has been relentlessly vocal in advocating for President Boakai to issue this executive order favoring the setting-up of such an office.
In this regard, STAND has commended President Boakai and the Liberia National Legislature under the leadership of Speaker J. Fonati Koffa for fulfilling this key and crucial premise of justice, in part, to pursue and hold accountable those bearing the greatest responsibility for the bloodletting and destruction visited upon Liberia for nearly two decades.
Now that this historic and monumental feat has been achieved, STAND urges President Boakai to take the next prudent step and write to the Secretary General of the United Nations. This important step forward will ensure the provisions of all necessary technical, diplomatic, and logistical support needed to bring an end to impunity in Liberia
