Tom Woewiyu

Former BBC correspondent Elizabeth Blunt recently testified in a US court against Tom Woewiyu, former rebel spokesman, on his role the Liberian war. But what sentence might he get, having been found guilty of immigration fraud and perjury rather than war crimes?

I think former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and others that founded and supported the second NPFL should also be tried for their roles in the Liberian civil war.

An investigation based on the defendant's alleged violation of US Immigration laws that could well be turned into a war crime case. But I strongly believe that this case has a war crime undertone disguised into a US immigration laws violation.

My Fellow Liberians: accountability is needed now more than ever

Ken Harper - Together Liberia
Saturday, March 10, 2018 - 16:21

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.

Great to pursue justice in Liberia. and I believe justice will hunt perpetrators atrocities during Liberian civil wars. I just want to understand what you are doing to document the atrocious massacre in Barkedu, Lofa County; I hope the voices of Barkedu's victims must also be heard through your efforts

This is a great initiative. The perpetrator of war crimes must be brought to justice. Is really becoming a customery thing in Liberia to reward world's most notorious criminals with public offices. In a country where the illiterates are more then the literate, the decision making last in the hands of the majority. This is one of the greatest problem in the liberian society. I personally support any international establishment of justice system that will serve justice to all Liberian. If we as Liberian can not establish a court to bring notorious criminals to justice, then we support any external establishment as long as justice will be served to our people. One again thank so much for this great initiative.

Justice served as a roof that provides sustainability for the promotion of peace; its also served as a light that brightening the road to democracy. Now it's not about your previous role during the civil war but now it about taking the responsibility in making sure that guinee justice is serve. There must be a precedent to avoid tthe reoccurrence of the past. Don't be ashamed or afraid when you are associated with your past especially what you did consciously and boastfully.
