Supt. Solo Warns Against Looting of Refugee Camp

By Chris Nyenapee

SOLO TOWN, Grand Gedeh County, March 8 (LINA) - Residents of the Solo Town, a community near Zwedru that hosted a refugee camp, have been warned against looting of facilities of the camp that has been shut down.

Grand Gedeh County Superintendent Peter L. Solo gave the warning Friday after touring the camp to get first-hand information about facilities there which, he said,  residents will benefit from after its formal turn-over  to  the  Liberian Government.

Facilities assessed included a school building, clinic, hand pumps, training workshop, women center, water plant and a police depot, among others.

Mr. Solo told the residents to ensure that everything on the refugee camp is intact before its formal turn-over to government and subsequently to the Solo Town Community.

He stressed that anyone caught looting and vandalizing the area will be arrested and prosecuted by government.

Recently, the UN refugee agency along with the Government of Liberia announced the closure of all refugee camps in Grand Gedeh County, except the PTP Camp.

The first refugee camp to close was the Dougee Town Refugee Camp.

According to the Liberia Refugee, Repatriation and Resettlement Commission (LRRRC), the transfer of over 5,000 refugees from Solo Town is in line with the policy to transfer all refugees from Grand Gedeh County.
