AFELL Wants Serious Investigation Into Sexual Assault At MTM

The Association of Female Lawyers of Liberia (AFELL) says it has learned with grave concern and dismay of the new topical issue of alleged sexual assault and abuse of young girls of the ‘More Than Me Academy’ some four years ago.

In a statement, the organization says it is encouraged by the government’s action of launching an investigation into said scandal, but however said it is belated.

“AFELL looks forward to the outcome of this investigation and hopes that anyone found culpable will be made to face the full weight of the law for this alleged abuse and betrayal of the trust and confidence of the victims,” the statement reads.
