Sierra Leone Civil Society Against Costa’s Return

Seven civil society leaders in Sierra Leone are urging their government to immediately release Henry Costa, whom they also refer to as a civil rights activist in Liberia and allow him travel to the United States of America or his preferred destination.
In a press conference yesterday, the groups further called on the government of Sierra Leone to reject any extradition request from the Government of Liberia because as they have been informed, if extradited to Liberia, Costa will be severely tortured by the Weah administration.
“The Sierra Leone Government has an obligation under both national and international law to protect human rights and should not be seen as facilitating the abuse or in violation of such rights. Should the Sierra Leone Government extradite Costa to Liberia, it will be equally blamed for any abuses or violation to which he may be subjected,” the group reminded their leaders.
They said, “This will certainly have a far-reaching implication for Sierra Leone’s human rights credentials and its international image. We believe that Costa’s right to demonstrate is guaranteed under both the international and Liberian Laws therefore we strongly condemn the Liberian government’s attempt to punish him for exercising his rights.”
Meanwhile, the Sierra Leone Minister of information and Communication, Mohammed Swaray, has informed the BBC that his government will not take instructions from any government regarding the ongoing saga involving the CoP’S Chairperson, Henry Costa.
Mr. Swaray said his government is committed to protecting the rights of Mr. Costa and that in as much as they are cooperating with the Government of Liberia regarding the request from the Immigration authorities; it has no intentions of straying from democratic principles.
He admitted that Costa is not being detained and that he is still enjoying his human rights therefore as a sovereign democracy, they do not take instructions from other people and assured that freedom will be respected. “We will not keep Costa any longer than necessary. At the appropriate time we will do what is right by our Constitution,” the Sierra Leonean Government assured.

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    A lot of of the things you assert is astonishingly legitimate and it makes me ponder why I had not looked at this with this light before. This piece truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this particular issue goes. However there is one particular issue I am not too cozy with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual core theme of your issue, allow me observe exactly what the rest of the visitors have to point out.Nicely done.
