( 19, 2015)-Justice Minister, Benedict Sannoh, says Liberia’s security sector is at a critical stage as it prepares to fully take over from the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).

As the UN Mission in Liberia draws down, the country will take over its own security in June, 2016 after the transitional process.

Minister Sannoh spoke Thursday, September 17, 2015 when the Ministry received 19 computers from the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement.

The organization’s Program Manager, Thomas Barnes, said: “The machines are valued over US$50,000.00. Ongoing instillation works cost over US$30,000.00.”

“It will enhance inter-ministerial internet connectivity as some ministries already have similar set up,” Mr. Barnes also said.

Meanwhile, Cllr. Sannoh has lauded the group for the support, but stressed the need for capacity to enable the ministry fully utilize the donation.

Meanwhile, the Justice Minister says dismissed Deputy EPS Boss, Darlington George, is currently undergoing police investigation.

Cllr.Sannoh said Mr. George remains in police custody pending findings from the investigation, following which the accused will be charged appropriately and sent to court for trial.

Cllr Sannoh clarified: “Darlington George, like any other Liberian, will not be given any preferential treatment.”

President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf recently dismissed Mr. George for allegedly brutalizing a female, sparking serious public anger against him.
