Senate Condemns Violence in Nimba County

Winnie T. Dixon, Intern

MONROVIA, July 10 (LINA) – The Liberian Senate has condemned the recent violence against ArcelorMittal in Nimba County that left several property looted and damaged.

The Senate, through its Committee chairperson on Foreign Affairs, H. Dan Morias, said no matter the citizens’ grievances, the destruction of the company’s property sends the wrong signals to investors and would-be investors interested in Liberia.

The Senator told the Liberia News Agency recently at his Capitol Building office that the action of the Namibians was outside of civilized norms, and as such, those responsible must be dealt with in accordance with the due process of law.

Senator Morias maintained that Liberia is a country of law and that the plenary of the Senate will support all measures by law to take violence out of Liberia.

Commenting on the alleged flogging of Nimba District 2 Representative Prince Tokpah, Senator Morias noted that the Senate awaits full briefing from the Ministries of National Defense, Internal affairs and the Nimba Legislative Caucus to ascertain the truth before taking any decision the issue.

Arcelor Mittal came under attack on Thursday, July 3, by rioters who later took several employees hostage and went on the rampage destroying millions of dollars property of the company.

Calm has been restored to the concession area and the management of ArcelorMittal has resumed normal operations.
