MOPNROVIA, LIBERIA-The Forestry Development Authority (FDA) says it has sent seven persons to court for prosecution after it cleared the Sapo National Park of poachers and illegal occupants.

The Management said the removal of illegal occupants has now set the basis for an unhindered management of the park, describing it as a major boost for the forestry sector. 
Making the disclosure Wednesday, September 5, 2018, FDA Managing Director, C. Mike Doyen, said the FDA has renewed management’s commitment to executing the laws that govern wildlife and protected areas, including national parks across the Country.

The FDA boss then commended the local authorities, traditional leaders, the communities and concerned collaborating partners for their support to the process.

According to Mr. Doyen, John Wetteh Jr., Abraham Abara, Prince Toe, Philip Gbarblow, Saytue Toe, George N. Weah, and John Sartee were arrested for evading the Sapo National Park to carry out illegal activities in the area.

The FDA Boss also disclosed the arrest of two individuals in Grand Cape Mount County for killing an elephant in violation of the wildlife laws of Liberia.
