Hailing Boakai on WECC Overtures -CDC SG Koijee Says It’s A Dream Come True

MONROVIA: Though the quest to establish War and Economic Criminal Court (WECC) was not an official policy of Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) back in the days, CDC which later metamorphosed into the Coalition for Democratic Change, there are noted stalwarts of the party that can be credited for pioneering the ideal of the effort. Former Monrovia City Mayor Jefferson Koijee and former Chairperson of the CDC Mulbah Morlu are amongst those pioneers, and they took bruises for the advocacy struggle which, ironically, they couldn’t consummate during the reign of their party in national leadership. But, for whatever reason, President Joseph Boakai appears to be torpedoing into existence what has slowly come long way, which even the Unity Party government he served for 12 years as Vice President had failed to accomplish. Koijee still believes his pioneering efforts are not in vain; reason why he got some commendations for the current President. The Analyst reports.

The Secretary General of the Coalition for Democracy (CDC) has commended President Joseph N. Boakai for leapfrogging the establishment of War and Economic Crimes Court.

Jefferson Koijee said it was his “pleasing honor to congratulate President Joseph Nyumah Boakai for finally bringing impunity at the verge of its demise”.

He said Executive Order #131 which the President promulgated and signed recently, less than four months in office, “could not have been possible without the gallantry of the Legislature and the resilience of all Liberians following the death of two hundred and fifty thousand Liberians during decades of senseless conflict”.

“The courage of six out of nine former TRC Commissioners who braved the storm, mustered the courage and defied former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s naked threat in signing a document that can be used as a working tool for today’s development cannot be overemphasized,” he said in a statement. He added, “Thank you” to President Boakai.

Reflecting on days when he and others of the CDC were involved with advocating for the establishment of a war crimes court in Liberia, Koijee said: “I would like to particularly commend former Chairman Mulbah K. Morlu, myself and others who today carry the scars for the honest fight for the establishment of War and Economic Crimes Court for Liberia and social justice.
“This is a victory beyond imagination,” he said further. “We now look forward to perpetrators being brought to book and the culture of impunity coming to an end once and for all.”
