Nimba County Senator Prince Johnson has described as garbage the plan establishment of war crimes Court in Liberia.

According to him there is no legal backing to support such court’s establishment in Liberia.

He told Reporters Friday November 1, 2019 in Nimba County that those who are calling for the establishment of World Crimes Court in Liberia are on the wrong path terming them as stupid people.

Senator Johnson made specific reference to some lawyers including the President of the National Bar Association of Liberia Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe.

The Nimba Senator  justified further that the Court’s establishment is not applicable in Liberia.

He argued that under the 51st National Legislature a law was passed code name: Amnesty-Law granting all warrant factions who part-took in the civil conflict not to be held liable for what they did.

Moreover, Senator Johnson stressed that it impossible to have both laws implemented together, something he added, the vice majority of the people are not aware about including some lawmakers, branding them as bobo-lawmakers.

He indicated that he feels embarrassed by regular calls from people that he is a war law when he has not been indited.

“They use such to stigmatized me be not to go further in my political life but I remain focus and committed to the cause of my people”, he added.

“Give the people the power to make their own decision in the best interest of the people” Senator Johnson,  he noted.

 According to him he is not rascal as people think rather, ” I say what i do and do what i say”, respectively.
