Liberia-February 9, 2021-WTVNEWS: The Minister of Justice, Frank Musa Dean, and the Inspector General of the Liberia National Police Patrick Sudue are expected to appear before the full plenary of the Liberian Senate next Tuesday to explain the status of three Liberian boys who mysteriously disappeared four months ago.
The decision to invite the top security apparatus was as a result of Montserrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon raising the issue of the missing Liberian citizens under any other business or AOB during the Senate’s Plenary session.
Sen. Dillion’s concern met the consensus of all Senators, thereby asking him to do a formal communication with a narrative of how the incident happened.
The motion to invite the top security officers was proffered by Grand Bassa County Senator Jonathan L. Kaipay which was unanimously accepted thus citing the Justice Minister and the police IG on this Tuesday, February 16, 2021.
According to Sen. Dillion, the government has been very insensitive and has done nothing tangible to ensure the matter is laid to rest, why giving family members of the missing men justice.
” Three members of your citizens mysteriously disappeared and up to now, nothing has happened? only because they are not relatives of any so-called big name? We should be ashamed of ourselves” Sen. Dillion said.
He continued ” the one that made matter worse is that the man that was accused government is still doing business with the Man, and the man still passing around with nothing being done, I am disappointed”.
On October 17, 2020, Robert M. Blamo, Jr, 29, Siafa Gbana Boimah, 34, and Bobby S. Gbeanquoi, 32, were reported drowned in a river in Fuama district, lower Bong County.
The three guys were contracted to do a job for St. Moses at the Oriental mining company owned and operated by Mr. Moses Ahossoule who is the Proprietor of St. Moses Funeral Parlour on the Somalia Drive in Gardnersville.
According to St Moses, the three guys were allegedly riding on a canoe that capsized while returning to their respective locations in Monrovia. But there have been no dead bodies to prove that the three men got drowned, family members have said.
Addressing a press briefing on the issue, Police spokesman Moses Carter said that the owner of St. Moses Funeral Home is not a suspect but a Person of Interest, as such, protesters should refrain from disrupting operations of the facility.
Carter, during the press conference maintained that the funeral Home facility is not a crime scene, therefore, Citizens should exercise patience as the Police conduct an investigation into the matter.
Families of the Missing boys for two weeks, besieged the compound of St Moses Parlor, demanding the living bodies of their Children who St Moses said they allegedly got drowned, with placards of different inscriptions “We Want Justice, Bring our Brothers Back Alive St Moses, among others.
On October 19, 2020, families Members of the three Missing men were allegedly torn gas by the Liberia National Police (LNP) and three persons got arrested following a peaceful protest in demand of their children.
They noted in one tune that information given to the families by St Moses that the children got drown is misleading.
They said traditional Chief Zanzan Karwar was clear in telling them that no Canoe capsized as been said by St. Moses.
“No Shirt was found, items of the children are yet to be found, Where are the bodies?? then you are saying our children are Dead, St Moses you must be Joking our children are not Dead Bring Back our children alive” family members mentioned during one of the Protests.
Family members also gathered at the US Embassy to Demand Justice For the Children but nothing has happened.
