"Implement All Punishments In Keeping With UCMJ," Pres. Sirleaf Orders

MONROVIA, November 10 (LINA) -The Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) has directed that all punishments contained in the AFL Board of Inquiry report be carried out in compliance with the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

The Liberian leader issued the directive when she received and analyzed two reports from the Joint Task Force Board of Inquiry of the Ministry of Defense and the Independent National Human Rights Commission (INHRC) relating to the August 20, 2014 shooting incident in the Township of West Point, which resulted to the death of Shaki Kamara and injury to Titus Nuah

“In this regard, the government pledges to continue to work with all relevant stakeholders and interested parties to achieve these ends,” the statement said.

In apparent response to the recommendation by the INCHR, the Government has instructed the Minister of Internal Affairs to take the appropriate action in reassigning the Township Commissioner.
