MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Liberian Government has officially requested the British Government to take action on the reported calls being made by former President, Charles Taylor to his supporters back home in Liberia.

Information Minister, Eugene Nagbe said: “It will be necessary to understand the intent of the communication from Taylor as it is raising concerns in national and international quarters.”

Minister Nagbe in an interview with ELBC Tuesday, February 14, 2017 stressed that; “the Liberian Government is equally so concerned and has utilized the diplomatic channel, through the Foreign Ministry of Liberia, accordingly from its British counterpart  to take action in mitigating the situation.”

He said the Government’s concern is bordered on the possibility that Taylor’s calls made to his supporters in Liberia might have compromised or infringed on his jail terms and conditions.

Minister Nagbe further said: “If the terms and conditions are being violated, than the Liberian Government, as a party to the incarceration of the former President Taylor, requests that the British Government looks into it and put in place measures.”
