Answer: There are several types of Deeds. We will tell you about some of the most common ones; namely:
The frequent appearances of ‘country devils’ in Tubmanburg, Bomi County, are disrupting ordinary lives as well as affecting medical services at the government hospital, Dr. G. Gorbee Logan, County Chief Health Officer, has said.
Dr. Gorblee said that country devils’ appearances are accompanied by wild shouts that frighten health workers and patients.
He made the alarming disclosure Wednesday when he presented the situation report at a two-day Health Review Meeting with implementing partners at the Paynesville Town Hall outside Monrovia.
A hearing to set the basis for the Civil Law Court to determine whether or not to look into the merits and demerits of a US$10million lawsuit filed against the government of Liberia by Montserrado County Representative Edward Forh for the death of his daughter could not take place last Wednesday due to the absence of state lawyers in the courtroom.
Justifying state lawyers’ absence on Wednesday, Judge Yussif Kaba, who is presiding over the case, said that he received a letter from the Full Bench of the Supreme Court instructing him to postpone the matter.
The Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) has suspended Aminata & Sons, Inc. from lifting duty free products at the LPRC and has instituted a probe into the company’s alleged misdirecting of fuel belonging to the Liberia Water & Sewer Corporation, (LWSC).
The suspension will be in force, pending the completion of a full investigation.
Independent Human Rights Investigators (IHRI), a local based rights group, and the Liberia Independent Advocates for Human Rights (LIAHR) yesterday issued a joint statement drawing the attention of the government of Liberia (GOL), through the Ministry of Justice (MOJ), to what they call the “culture of suspicious deaths while in the custody of the Liberia National Police (LNP).” The act, the right groups said, has raised concerns.
Defense Minister, Brownie J. Samukai lauded the government and people of Ghana for their immense support, which he said has positively impacted Liberia’s defense sector reform, when he held talks on Wednesday with Ghanaian Vice Air Marshall, Issifu Kadri.
“The close ties subsisting between Ghana and Liberia have an enriching partnership value that has expanded the network of cooperation between the militaries of both countries,” Samukai told the Ghanaian solider.
The United States Agency for International Development/Food and Enterprise Development (USAID/FED) on Monday, October 27, dedicated a modern cold storage facility at Rosna Services Incorporated – a Liberian owned company that caters to ArcelorMittal Liberia.
The storage, said one official, will help preserve the produce of local farmers engaged in vegetable farming.
The cassava farmers of Liberia, under the National Cassava Sector Coordinating Committee (NCSCC), have been assured of two major cassava markets in the country.
National Coordinator of the NCSCC, Mr. Joseph S. Morris, said in an interview that his organization is in discussions with the World Food Program (WFP) and Mary Meal for the inclusion of cassava value added products in the menu of their institutions for their respective school feeding programs.
He said consensus has been built between the NCSCC and the two organizations to promote local produce.
