Gov’t Warns Potential Troublemakers

MONROVIA, LIBERIA - The Government of Liberia (GoL) has said its attention has been drawn to plans by a group of people to agitate before the Capitol Building offices of the  National Legislature, when lawmakers are on their annual constituency break.

In a press release issued in Monrovia and signed by Information Minister, Legerhood J. Rennie, there has been no notice of such protest to the government including the legislature. “As the government reiterates its commitment to upholding the fundamental right to peaceful assembly, it also emphasizes that all such gatherings must be done in keeping with law. At this point, no authorization has been requested or granted to protesters for a march,” the press release said. Meanwhile, the government then called on the public to go about its normal business, while cautioning potential troublemakers to refrain from testing the limits of the law.
