Nimba Superintendent against war crimes court

Superintendent Dorr Cooper of Nimba County is worried about ongoing campaign for the establishment of war crimes court in Liberia, calling on President George Manneh Weah to resist the establishment of such court for the country.

Cooper, himself a former general from the civil war, says such court would carry out selective justice for leaders in Africa, adding that it is not in the best interest of people of Nimba where the rebel invasion of Liberia began on December 24, 1989 by Charles Taylor’s NPFL rebels.

Speaking recently in Ganta, Nimba County when he declared his membership for the governing Coalition for Democracy Change along with 300 of his kinsmen, he disclosed the decision to join the ruling party is to prevail on President George Weah to resist the court coming here.

Superintendent Cooper maintains war crimes court will not do anything good for Liberia, but selective justice against few hand of people for their roles during the 14 years of civil war in the country.

At a recent County Sitting in Sanniquellie City, Nimba County, the leader of the disbanded INPFL rebels Senator Prince Yormie Johnson, publicly called on Nimbaians to reject the court.

Senator PYJ told the gathering that attempt to establish such court for Liberia that could see him appear, he still has his followers (fighters) and they will return to the bush to rain havoc.
