Women Caucus Condemns ‘Suspicious’ Death Of Greaves
By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA

MONROVIA, February 1 (LINA) – The Women Legislative Caucus of Liberia has condemned the mysterious death of Harry Greaves, former Managing Director of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC).

Greaves was discovered dead on the beach behind the old Budget Bureau in Monrovia on Sunday, January 31.

“It is saddening, and alarming that a prominent citizen’s death can come under such mysterious circumstance,” the Chairperson of the Women Legislative Caucus of Liberia, Senator Jewel Taylor said.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Monrovia Monday, Senator Taylor described the situation as “totally unacceptable” and called on government to do all within its power to conduct a speedy and urgent investigation to bring the perpetrators to justice should there be any foul play.

The Bong County Senator described as scary recent developments regarding mysterious deaths and ritualistic killings, especially as the country prepares for the 2017 elections, adding, “It is sad and it is worrying to the Women Legislative Caucus.”

She wondered what the 2017 elections will be if contestants will have to visit rural parts of the country to freely express themselves.

Senator Taylor said the growing wave of mysterious deaths speaks volumes about the current and future security situation, and stressed the need for it to be addressed with sincerity.

At a special press conference at the Ministry of Information in Monrovia on Monday, Justice Minister Benedict Sannoh termed the deaths of GT Bank Manager, Dan Orogun, a Nigerian, and Harry Greaves as “suspicious,” and emphasized that under the law government is required to conduct comprehensive forensic examinations to ascertain the causes of the deaths.

He noted that government attaches serious importance to the recent situation and will shortly inform the public of its findings.
