Gov’t Vows to Use Sinoe’s CDF for Damage at GVL

first_imgThe Government has vowed to use Sinoe County’s Development Funds (CDF) to pay for damages caused by rioters at the Golden Verolum-Liberia (GVL) recently.At the Ministry of Information press briefing yesterday, Minister Lewis Brown explained that the relevant government authorities, including the Ministries of Justice and Labor have been directed to work with the GVL to carry out a full assessment of the damages to the concession’s properties. He said the government will use the Social or the County Development Fund to pay for properties damaged by the rioters.Minister Brown said the Liberia National Police (LNP) had begun a thorough search and seizure of operations in Butaw for the looted properties of GVL. During the incident several persons were held hostage, including the Minister of Gender, Julia Duncan-Cassell, who acted as Chairman of the Cabinet in the absence of the President from the country, and the Deputy Minister for Administration at the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Varney Sirleaf.Minister Brown further disclosed that when the rioters or their ring leaders are found and properly identified they will be arrested along with anyone that harbored them. The retrieved looted properties will be returned to the company.“Authorities at the MOJ have also been instructed to press for additional charges including that of economic sabotage against such persons whenever applicable.” According to Min. Brown, the violence in Butaw does not threaten our peace and security. “It undermines our collective livelihood and unfairly portrays the country as an unsafe destination for foreign investments,” he pointed out. The government, he declared, had worked hard to return the country to an enviable place for foreign and domestic investments in order to create much needed jobs and improve the living conditions of its citizenry.The government will decisively and effectively resist any effort by anyone or any group either to alter our course or reverse the collective progress gained over the years by all Liberians, he emphasizedHe stated that “the government will not accept the misuse or abuse of international protocols to undermine its sovereign duties and responsibilities, thereby making it difficult, if not impossible, for her to meet the needs and fulfill the expectations of its people.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
