The TOLBERT & GEORGE FAMILIES encourage the entirety of Liberia’s Law Enforcement Institutions and Agencies in applying their maximum efforts and utmost professionalism to determine the cause(s) and/or Persons responsible for Ambassador Tolbert’s death. We fully expect the application of all appropriate remedies in the circumstances as this will
restore confidence in Liberia’s Public Security and its National & International image.
Pending investigations and official inquiries, The TOLBERT & GEORGE FAMILIES will inform the public of FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS at a later date. In the presence of our tragedy, we declare and renew OUR FAITH in GOD and the Liberian Nation.
