Following an impasse with Nimba County Senator, Prince Yormie Johnson, on establishing a war and economic crimes court in Liberia, Montserrado County Senator, Abraham Darius Dillon has reiterated the need to establish the court in the Country.
Tension brewed in the Chambers of the Liberian Senate during session on Thursday May
13, 2021 when Senator Dillon commented on the establishment of the war crimes court in Liberia.
Senator Johnson, a former warlord who doesn’t apparently want the court established in Liberia was agitated by his colleague’s comment in favor of the establishment of the Court, thus walking out of session in protest.
But Senator Dillon has vowed to reintroduce the matter on the floor during the Senate’s next sitting on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, despite agitation by his colleague, Senator Prince Johnson.
On his Facebook page, Senator Dillon said; “We must insist on the compelling need of establishing a War and Economic Crimes Court for Liberia”.
“The culture of impunity must begin to end in Liberia and perpetrators, whoever they may be, must be brought to justice to serve as the deterrence”, Senator Dillon continued.
The Montserrado County Senator said he would continue to advocate for the establishment of the court until something is done just as he did in the case of former LACC boss, Cllr. Ndubusi Nwabudike.
