Liberian Warlords

"We [Liberians] must face our “bygones” – the past, instead of letting the many questions go unanswered."

Liberians across the globe are hoping, as the Truth and Reconciliation Committee begins its work of collecting evidence of abuses during the Liberian civil war, that light will be shed on war crimes. They are hoping that former warlords turn politicians and rebel commanders responsible for abuses and killings of civilians during the civil war (1989-2003) will be brought to justice. I am hoping too, against all odds that some rebel commanders who put me against the wall in the northern Liberian town of Foyah in 1993 to be executed, will come forward and confess to atrocities committed against civilians
Monrovia in blood.
