( 24, 2015)-The Independent National Human Rights Commission (INHRC) has commenced full scale investigation into the April 16th motor cyclist riot in the Paynesville metropolitan.

The riot in the area left several persons wounded and properties, including police depots, destroyed.

INHRC Acting Chairman, Boakai Dukuly, said: “The commission will thoroughly probe the incident to establish its cause and subsequently inform the Liberian people.”

Mr. Dukuly made the statement Wednesday, April 22, 2015 when he spoke to in Paynesville, outside the Liberian capital, Monrovia.

He condemned mob justice as means of seeking redress, saying: “Mob justice is an affront to the rule of law and a dangerous recipe for anarchy.”

The Independent National Human Rights Commission Boss also termed all forms of security brutality as un-acceptable, noting: “Law Enforcement Officers must always exercise patience and follow the due process.”

At the same time, the commission says it will not form part of the investigation panel set up recently by the Justice Ministry to probe the April 16th riot by the Red-light motorcyclists.

Acting Chairman Dukuly congratulated Justice Minister, Benedict Sannoh, for setting up the investigation panel.

He, however, said: “The Commission has already started its own independent inquiry into the recent violent demonstration involving some motorcyclists.”
