On behalf of a coalition of Liberian and international NGOs, we welcome the outcome of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) on Liberia, which contains important recommendations to limit impunity for atrocities committed during the country’s two armed conflicts. These include creating a war crimes court that holds fair, impartial, and independent trials of past crimes with assistance from the United Nations.
We welcome Liberia’s acceptance of the recommendation to move towards the implementation of measures put forward by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to ensure accountability. We are, however, concerned that Liberia only noted the recommendation to create a war crimes court. In addition, as part of its presentation to the working group, Liberia “did not report persistent impunity for human rights violations” and claimed “cases of human rights abuses had been investigated[,] … prosecuted and punished.” Such statements are not justified by the facts given Liberia’s continued lack of prosecutions of serious past crimes. Liberia’s approach also runs counter to the recommendations it previously accepted during its last UPR to establish an accountability mechanism, and no progress has been observed during its most recent reporting cycle.
