In its request to deny Liberian Government officials visas to the United States for their alleged involvement in Liberia’s yearlong civil war, one of those caught in the web has vowed to visit the United States no matter what it takes.
Speaking to the GNN early this week, Liberian Information Minister, Lewis G. Brown boastfully said he will visit the United States any time this month, July 2014, noting, “Wait and see if I will not leave Liberia to go to the United States,” in a chat with this network at his Capitol Hill office said.
Early this week it was announced in both the local and international media that some Government officials including the Information Minister were denied visas by the United States Government for their role played during the Liberian fifteen years civil war.
Following that announcement, several Liberians including Representative Moses Acarous Gray (CDC-District #8 Montserrado County) in an interview with reporters in Monrovia welcomed the decision of the US Government, saying this development should be celebrated by all Liberians, stressing, “The Action by the U.S. and French governments is a welcoming news that will serve as a deterrence factor because I have come to realize that a result of the Civil conflict all sought of buffoons have hijacked power at every sector of government. Personally in my opinion Liberians should by now be rejoicing with the breaking such news.”
As these new developments unfold, sources closed to the Liberian Government have confirmed that the Liberian government has made an appropriate representation to the United States Ambassador to Liberia Debora Malac on the issue Monday. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which hosts the presidency, was unusually crowded with a lot of diplomatic and government-plated vehicles Monday. Sources say, President Sirleaf held a lengthy meeting with Ambassador Malac, who, according to a source, said the issue was out of her hands.
