"Liberians need a form of relief from the people who have terrorized their country for the past 25 years and dehumanized the population" – Bernard Gbayee Goah

President, Operation We Care For Liberia
The more we ignore the level of madness that visited Liberia;
The more we ignore that countless number of innocent people were raped; tortured, enslaved, and killed;
The more we illusively think that the passing of time will eventually diminish the severity of what took place in Liberia;
The more illusions we build for a peaceful and reconciled Liberian nation .
For we know, that it is just too wrong for those accused of committing war crimes, and crimes against humanity to be the same people in-charge of running the affairs of victims of war.
If we agree that those accused of war crimes in the country of Chad, should not be the same people running the affair of the Chadian people;
If we agree that those accused of war crimes in Sudan, should not be the same people running the affairs of the Sudanese people;
Then we as well must agree, that it is also wrong for those accused of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in Liberia, to be the same people running the affairs of victims of war in that country.
Today in Liberia, suspects of war crimes and crimes against humanity are now dictating the pace of a “government favored justice process” that holds no one accountable.
If justice for Chad and Sudan “is a must”, then justice for Liberia has to be “a must”. Otherwise, this is a complete slap in the face to the people of Liberia!
