Justice Wolokollie Urges Liberians To Build Trust In Police

By Richard D. Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, November 10 (LINA) - Associate Justice Jamesetta Wolokollie has called on Liberians to start building confidence in the Liberia National Police (LNP) and other state security agencies as they assume full responsibility for security following the withdrawal of UNMIL in September 2016.

She indicated that every Liberian should take responsibility to maintain the peace now being enjoyed following years of hostilities that led to the intervention of the international community.

Justice Wolokollie made the call Monday at the 13th Judicial Circuit Court in Kakata, Margibi County during the formal opening of the court for the November Term.

According to Wolokollie, Liberians should now begin to disabuse their minds of the thought that the only way they can enjoy sustained peace is when United Nations peacekeepers are in the country.

The Associate Justice then called on Liberians to stop being very disobedient to authorities and respect the laws governing the country.

She observed that in the absence of respect for authorities, it will be difficult to maintain the peace after the departure of UNMIL peacekeepers, adding, “We must be respecters of the law at all times irrespective of our status, culture or social callings.”

She commended UNMIL and the international community for helping to maintain peace in Liberia, noting that “there were numerous challenges from the onset but they (UNMIL) were able to amicably tackle them and as a result, Liberians have enjoyed a decade of sustained peace.”
