U.S. Gov. Releases 2023 Human Rights Report

by Varflay Kamara

MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The United States Government has released its Human Rights Report for 2023, with no significant changes in the human rights situation in Liberia, during the year.

According to the report, there were no reports of political prisoners of detainees, and individuals could generally criticize the Government publicly or privately.

However, it highlighted significant human rights issues, including allegations of arbitrary or unlawful killings, extrajudicial killings, torture, degrading treatment or punishment by the Government or on behalf of the Government.

The Report acknowledged the elections in October and November as being widely reported to be fair, but not free of abuses or irregularities.

It said the European Election Observation Mission accused former President George Weah and the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) of using State resources to gain unfair political advantage.

On corruption in Government, the Report said there were numerous reports of correction in the Government; however, the Government generally did not prosecute those allegations.
