President Orders Justice, Health Ministries To Probe Rape-Death Case

MONROVIA, January 23 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf Friday ordered the Justice and Health Ministries to launch a full-scale investigation into the reported negligence of some elements of the Liberia National Police and health care facilities in the death of 12-year-old Musu Fofana, who died after allegedly being raped by a former officer of the Armed Forces of Liberia, 40-year-old Musa Kanneh, in Brewerville, Montserrado County.

Information Minister Lewis G. Brown told the state-run Liberia News Agency (LINA) today that President Sirleaf ordered the investigation immediately after visiting the family of the victim in Moulton Corner, Brewerville.

In a very serious tone, President Sirleaf said any functionary of the Liberian Government found culpable of negligence in the death of little Musu Fofana will be punished under the fullest weight of the law.

Friends and relatives of the deceased blamed Brewerville Police and the Redemption Hospital in New Kru Town for negligence in handling the case prior to the death of little Musu Fofana.
