BREAKING NEWS: Liberian Women Cry For Justice in Gruesome Death of former Chief Justice Scott’s Daughter
Capitol Hill, Monrovia – A group of Liberian women are staging a sit-in at the grounds of the Capitol in demand of justice following the brutal killing of Charloe Musu, daughter of former Chief Justice Gloria Musu-Scott.
Charloe Musu, a graduating student of the Smythe Institute of Science and Technology, was stabbed to death by an unknown assailant recently in an assassination attempt on Justice Musu-Scott at her residence.
Dress in all black, the women are calling for the Legislature to exercise its oversight responsibility to push the Executive through the Justice Ministry to ensure Justice is served.
Currently seated at the entrance of the Rotunda of the Capitol Building, the women are also demanding justice for other women who were murdered in cold blood under mysterious circumstances.
The action by the women’s group comes just a day after several women’s organizations across Liberia stood in solidarity with Justice Musu-Scott for the loss of her daughter.
Speaking during the visit, the Executive Director of the Women Non-Governmental Organizations Secretariat of Liberia, Esther Yango called on the government of Liberia to deliver justice.
Madam Yango noted that the institution is against all forms of violence perpetrated against women and children.
Also speaking, the Chairperson of the National Civil Society Council of Liberia, Loretta Pope Kai stressed the need for the relevant authorities to take concrete steps to ensure the perpetrator(s) face Justice, rather than mere words.
Mrs. Pope-Kai reaffirmed the institution’s commitment to standing up for justice, equality, and peace, a move she said, they have currently embarked on.
