Renewing Our Plea To GoL

The issue of overcrowdings at prisons in our country, Liberia needs to be addressed by the Government of Liberia (GoL) through the relevant institutions, specifically the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).

The MoJ is responsible for providing "effective, efficient and excellent public safety and legal services which promote the rule of law, ensure the safety and security of the public and uphold the interest of the government and people of the Republic of Liberia."

But we had and continue to observe that most, if not all the prisons in the country, continue to be congested, which is a bad omen for our country.
Local and international human rights and pro-democracy institutions, including the media had persistently highlighted the congestions of prisons in the country and strongly underscored the need for the GoL to adequately address this growing problem.

While we sincerely acknowledge some of the strides the government had made in addressing this problem, we , on the other hand, again encourage the government to do more in tackling this seemingly life threatening problem, as it has the propensity of denting our nascent democracy.

We are deeply worried and even afraid that this growing problem could reach an explosive point if it is not addressed adequately and urgently.

In this vein, we again plead with the GoL via the MoJ to do everything in reducing congestions at the prisons in adherence to the rule of law and particularly in the interest of the inmates.

It is hoped that the GoL will do more in tackling the apparently growing issue of congestions at the various prisons, especially the Monrovia Central Prison for the betterment of the country.

    The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
