The deportees, according to reports, were 12 in number, but four took an appeal.
The eight Liberians were deported on multiple charges ranging from Theft of Property, Aggravated Assault, Illegal possession of Fire Arms, Domestic Violence, Robbery, Falsification of United States Citizenship and Burglary. According to the Liberia Immigration Service (LIS) Public Relations Officer, Mr. Abraham Dolley, the eight deportees are all males.
Dolley to our reporter that the deportees are currently at a special quarantine center for 14 days in line with Liberia’s health regulations as it relates to the fight against the coronavirus, especially when they have just returned from one of the badly hit COVID-19 Countries, the USA.
After being declared negative or free from the virus, Dolley disclosed that they will return to the LIS for profiling and proper documentation purposes after which they will be under a three-month robust monitoring where they will have to report to the LIS three days weekly.
Meanwhile, those caught in illegal possession of firearms will go for fire print to the Liberia National Police(LNP) before completing other security protocols.
Deportation is not unusual across the globe, especially for the violation of legal instruments of another country by an individual. It can be recalled that since the COVID-19 period, 14 persons have so far been deported from the United States of America to Liberia.
