UNPOL Boss Calls For Strengthened Security As UNMIL Draws Down

By Chris Nyenapee, LINA Grand Gedeh County Correspondent

ZWEDRU, June 4 (LINA) - UNMIL Police Commissioner Greg Hans has stressed the need for the strengthening of national security mechanisms throughout Liberia as UNMIL draws down.

He said although UN will remain in the country to support development, it is important to empower the security sector to fill the vacuum that will be left behind as a result of the draw down to enhance the gains made over the years.

The UNPOL Commissioner made the call in Zwedru, Grand Gedeh County recently to acquaint local officials of the county including heads of the joint security, about preparations for the security draw down.

In response, Grand Gedeh County Development Superintendent Abraham T. Gbeway called on central government to empower the security sector by making available additional resources to enable officers of the sector to reach out to the remotest areas as UNMIL leaves.

Meanwhile, Assistant Supt. Gbeway has called on authorities of the Ministry of Education to reinforce the teaching of civics in schools to rekindle the minds of students about their basic rights.

He added that this was necessary because the bulk of the students currently enrolled in schools were born during the period of violence which made them to have little or no knowledge about Liberian culture, their fundamental rights and the way government runs, among others.
