UN, Gov’t Set Up Regional Security Hubs

MONROVIA, Jan 28 (LINA) –The Liberian Justice Ministry in collaboration with the United Nations Peacekeeping Department has established a regional justice and security facility, called the Hub, to decentralize and strengthen the Criminal Justice System.

According to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first Hub established in Gbarnga to serve Bong, Lofa and Nimba, was inaugurated in February 2013 and is currently 95 percent complete.

In her State of the Nation address delivered Monday before the Third Session of the 53rd National Legislature, President Sirleaf said this has facilitated a successful management of disruptions in the three counties in the Gbarnga Region over the past year.

“The new Circuit Courthouses, which will open within a month, buttressed by construction of three Magisterial Courts, in each of the other two Hub counties, will further strengthen and make the justice system more accessible to our citizens in the leeward counties,” President Johnson Sirleaf said.

“The inclusion of immigration services, starting in the Gbarnga Hub Region, will pre-empt the need to travel to Monrovia to regularize immigration status.”

According to the Liberia News Agency, the Liberian leader disclosed that the construction of Hubs 2 and 3, in Zwedru and Harper, respectively, will commence soon. 

She added that similar facilities should follow, within the next year, for Buchanan and Tubmanburg, noting that this will cover the entire country on a regional basis.
