UNMIL’s Drawdown Challenges Gov’t, Says Justice Minister

BDavid Pamas Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, January 5 (LINA) -  Justice Minister Benedict Sannoh says the drawdown of troops of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) poses a challenge to the government to improve the Liberia National Police (LNP).

Sannoh said strengthening the LNP in the wake of the UNMIL drawdown is significant as personnel of the LNP will be moving into areas where UNMIL’s drawdown will take place.

He told a cross-section of reporters on the farm of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in Bomi County on January 1that major ports of entry, which are manned by UNMIL personnel and the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization, will see the involvement of the LNP to increase public safety.

He said though government has been faced with challenges, the LNP has done well as evidenced by the public acceptance of its role in terms of security, and assured Liberians that the police will work diligently to maintain law and order at all levels.
