My Fellow Liberians: accountability is needed now more than ever

In 2017, for the first time in history, voices of victims of the first Liberian civil war were heard in the criminal trial of Mohammed Jabbateh, aka Jungle Jabbah, a former Liberian warlord residing in Philadelphia USA. The Jabbateh trial showed that justice can be achieved without violence and it raised hope for thousands of Liberians. But the lack of accountability for grave crimes is an obstacle to peace and stability, and a potential cause for future conflict that must be addressed adequately. Now more than ever we need to make sure that Liberians are well-informed of the trials coming up outside the country.

Thomas R. Walker

A philosopher once said: 'there is no peace without justice'. Justice in Liberia will mean lasting peace, an assurance for stability, a deterrent to future offenders and peace of mind to victims. Let those war Lord's in Liberia and squanders be procecuted.

Under the Sky, One should be equal as long as Human Being.

Underprivileged social class, Before the birth, even after the death, this underprivileged group should follow the pre-framed given route.

Upon realizing that crossing the given route is limited, its trial object would be named as ‘Betrayer’ or targeted as ‘Gov. Sanction’.

Extending of this status, urged and resulted let David create hand written images between # 1 and # 58. Still, there, no one, no response, no way to get out, its condition is extended.

Its usefulness, it condition should be extended as usual.
