Capacitating Bureau of Corrections for improved prison

Prisons across Liberia may be playing host to about two thousand inmates- either found guilty or awaiting trial for various crimes. In some, especially the Monrovia Central prison, the issue of capacity to host these inmates continues to remain a concern. Despite alarms raised from time to time in the Liberian media, very little is done to improve the varying situations at prison facilities.

Lawmakers Could Be Right, Only If…

When Members of the 53rd Legislature publicly announced, upon their return from their annual break in January, that they would be very “robust” during this sitting, very little was unknown of their intention. While some had understood them as suggesting a more realistic and nationalistic approach to doing the “people’s business” this time, others found it a bit difficult to comprehend such “robustness” owing to their failure to commit themselves to similar vow made in January 2012 upon returning from their annual Legislative break.

Extolling Sino-Liberia Relations Again

In less than a decade now, Sino-Liberia relations continue to be characterized by tangible achievements. Even though at the core of such diplomatic relations is mutual respect, the developments which accompany such mutual respect only further cementing the ties. This is exactly what the current Sino-Liberia relations speak to, under the Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf Administration. While the relationship may be on the basis of reciprocity, the dividends accrue by Liberia from its diplomatic ties with the People’s Republic of China are even beyond praises. It is no secret that just less than a decade, the PRC has immensely contributed to the socioeconomic and infrastructure development of Liberia to include education and health.

The Liberia News Agency or LINA recently reported illegal logging activities in the northwestern region of Liberia by some Sierra Leonean nationals.
