Anti-Human Rights Group Threatens Hassan Bility

This is not the first time Mr. Bility’s name has been used as blame in the ongoing arrests of Liberian war criminals abroad. It may record, according to story published by Frontpage Africa newspaper, the sister of Agnes Reeves Taylor, former wife of Liberian warlord and ruler of Liberia, blamed Hassan Bility for being responsible for the arrest of her sister Agnes by English authorities for war crimes.
