(mylbsonline.com/Liberia)-The Liberian Government has clarified its recent decision to certificate former heads of warring factions to the Liberian conflict.

The government made the clarification Thursday, August 22, 2013 at the Information Ministry’s press briefing in Monrovia.

In its clarification, the government said the decision to certificate the former warring faction heads was in no way an attempt to reward them.

“Government’s decision was rather in appreciation to former warring faction heads’ commitment to lasting peace in Liberia,” Minister Brown quoted the government as having said.

Information Minister, Lewis Brown, and Minister of State without Portfolio, Conmany Wesseh, noted: “The former warring faction heads demonstrated their commitment to peace in the country by signing the Comprehensive Peace Accord (CPA) document in Accra, Ghana August 18, 2003.”

“By affixing their signatures to the CPA in Accra, Ghana, the former warring faction heads were making a vow never to return to war,” Ministers Brown and Wesseh also added.
