As pressure mounts for the prosecution of those who bear the greatest responsibilities for war year’s atrocities, information gather by the GNN has revealed that international investigators are in the country to extract some of those believed to have committed heinous crimes against humanity.

Those reportedly high on the list are people who provided political leadership for warring factions, and fighting command during Liberia’s bloody carnage that killed more than 250,000 people and the destruction of Liberia’s infrastructural worth billions of United States Dollars.

Sources closed to ECOWAS informed the GNN that Senator Prince Johnson haven learnt of the presence of international investigators being in Liberia and elsewhere in the region to pick up notorious war actors, decided to withdraw from the Liberian delegation to the ECOWAS Parliament.
