In the wake of the increasing wave of mysterious deaths as well as the proliferation of sexual gender base violence cases across Liberia, Pressure Group under the banner: Campaigner for Justice has called for what they described as national emergency for the deaths of three future leaders of Liberia of recent in the Country.
Addressing a joint press conference Tuesday the young advocates give national government 144 hours ultimatum to provide autopsy reports for the deaths of three future leaders of Liberia who they pointed out ,died in a mysterious manner and form.
“Should the government fail to work in the given space of the ultimatum thereof, we are resolved to lead a two-day national strike in the midst of international community until our demands are met on behalf of the family of the victims”, threatened Lead-campaigner for the March of Justice, Titus Kpakala.
“The mysterious death of three Liberian children including Linda Z. Sherman, Laurencier Davids and Omaru Kamara have reached our attention as human rights campaigners. These kids never lived to die at a young age, despite some parental economic constrains, they were brilliant kids whom everyone would wish to have as a child”, Titus added.
The young advocates say they resist the Liberian National Police official statement from Moses Carter, who hastily concluded without autopsy report that these kids committed suicide, in short: The Police told the parents and the world that Linda, Laurencier and Omaru had earlier gone to buy a rope to kill themselves.
The lead campaigner Titus B. Kpakala jr. told reporters Tuesday that the content of the Liberian National Police statement was unjustifiable and stands to undermine any clinical studies and or report on the death of Linda Z. Sherman, Laurencier Davids and Omaru Kamara.
It’s also unprecedented that the Police, since December 4, 2019 is yet to arrest any prime suspect who might have been linked to masterminding the death of Linda Z. Sherman—as we are aware of the extreme risks of an unsophisticated justice sphere which continues to deplete the pride of our nation’s quest for universal human rights issues and its sovereignty, Titus Intoned.
As a result of the circumstances relative to the deaths of the children, the pressure group recommends independent forensic experts, the United Nations Women, the Liberian Female Layer Association, the Independent Human Rights Commission, the European Union office in Liberia, the United States Embassy here in Monrovia and the staff and faculty of the St. Theresa Covent to initiate an urgent independent forensic investigation, in effort to buttress the family’s sleepless search for justice for these little children!
Additionally, they called on President George M. Weah, Lawmakers including Senators Abraham Darius Dillon and Saah Joseph, Representative Acarous Gray to join the fight to find the cause of these children’s death and to trash any and every statement made by the Liberia National Police and to declare these cases a national emergency in pursuit of justice for every family who are victims of oppressive human rights violations in Liberia, and in observance of the 16 Days of Activism.
