The Government of Liberia has frowned on the unwillingness of the Council of Patriots (COP) to present its petition after requesting the Government to appear and receive it.
But the Government of Liberia represented by Justice Minister Cllr. Frank Musa Dean and Foreign Minister Gbehzohngar Milton Finley refused to address the request of the protesters, a situation that prompted their immediate exit from the grounds of Capitol Building.
The Government of Liberia through a release from the Ministry of Information, regards the demand as “an attempt to undermine the rule of law.”
The accused, according to the release have been charged and awaiting appearance in court represented by their lawyer.
The government also expressed gratitude to members of the international community, including ECOWAS, the UN and the AU, for their efforts in promoting peace and security in the country.
COP is expected to address a major press conference on Sunday, June 9, to announce their next plan of action after the June 7 protest ended in a deadlock.
