18 TRC Recommendations ‘Non-Implementable,’ Says Pres. Sirleaf
By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe, LINA

MONROVIA, September 24 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has said of the 207 recommendations contained in the Truth and
Reconciliation (TRC) Report, 18 of them are essentially general principles which do not lend themselves to practical implementation or
actualization.

President Sirleaf described 42 of the recommendations as “basically concepts “ intended to facilitate the fostering of good governance
progressively, making specific reference to the 30 years period for the implementation of a national reparations program.
She also cited the establishment of special courts to prosecute persons listed as allegedly bearing the greatest responsibilities for the war.

The president’s statement was contained in a Comprehensive Progress Report on the implementation of the June 30, 2009 Final Report of the
TRC she submitted to the National Legislature on September 15. The Liberian leader indicated: “Consequently, actual recommendations
that are implementable in a short-to-medium timeframe are about 142.”

She, however, told the Legislators that the government has implemented or well advanced in implementing majority of the recommendations.

President Sirleaf also stated that a large number of the recommendations are being addressed in the National Vision-Liberia
Rising 2030, the National Symbols Project, and the Strategic Roadmap for National Healing, Peace-building and Reconciliation.

After the President’s Comprehensive Progress Report was read in Session on Tuesday, the Plenary of the House of Representatives
forwarded it to its Committees on Peace and Reconciliation, and Judiciary for review and advice with the mandate to report in one
week.
