Defense Authority Warns Public Not To Wear Military Uniforms, But Rep. Gray Says He Will

gaaThe Ministry of National Defense has called on the Liberian populace with immediate effect to stop the wearing of military uniforms or be prepared to be arrested by the Military Police wherever they see anyone wearing military uniforms.

The Defense Ministry press statement made specific reference of  Montserrado County Representative, J. Arcurus Gray who is always seen in military at most occasion including his Capitol Building office to stop the wearing of military uniforms.

But speaking to reporters, the Montserrado lawmaker said he challenged anyone to stop him from wearing military uniforms, saying the uniforms in question are sold in public and that no one has the right to ban him from wearing it.

Observers believed this latest challenge from the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) lawmaker to the Defense Ministry is another trouble creeping between the Defense Ministry and the House of Representatives; a situation they said is scaring.

Used clothes importers are in the constant habit of bringing in used military uniforms in the country and are always put on sale to the public.

The CDC lawmaker is always are the center of controversy, few days ago police impounded a stolen Range Rover Jeep from the United States which the police said he bought with his official plate on the jeep. The police are now investigating him on how he got this stolen vehicle being searched by US security agencies.
