Monrovia – Days following the release of the autopsy report of former Liberia Petroleum Managing Director Harry Greaves, Human Rights lawyer Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe has admonished government to go beyond the autopsy done on the body of the deceased.
“In my belief, Government has not done enough in this case. Let it go beyond the autopsy report and start to offer rewards to anyone that may have information on the death of Greaves,” said Cllr. Gongloe. Cllr. Gongloe said the circumstances surrounding Greaves’ death require information that the public needs to know.
“What I have realized is that since the incident, government has gone on the defensive. The defensive will not help government—it will continue the suspicions—what is needed now is thorough investigation to get to the bottom of the matter and I admonish government to work in that direction”, the lawyer stated.
On the question of Police invitation to the political leader of the opposition Movement for Progressive Change (MPC) over statement that government has names of 10 opposition leaders to eliminate Cllr. Gongloe stated that the invitation was not clear therefore Mr. Simeon Freeman had reason to be afraid.
According to Cllr. Gongloe, the MPC leader based his statement on rumor. “The action of the Justice Minister to arrest someone for rumor was wrong. All the government should have done is to rebut the statement. Are we saying we don’t have the intellectual will to do that now?” asked Cllr. Gongloe. He said the history of Police inviting people in the manner and form in which the MPC political leader has a bad setting in the country.
“In 1985, when the Quiwonkpa invasion took place with the plan to topple the Doe Government, former Immigration Chief of Intelligence along with several other persons were invited in this manner and did not return,” said Cllr. Gongloe. source frontpageafrica.com
