The Liberian government says it will receive a huge consignment of teargas and other riot control equipment from the French government as part of the renewed collaboration between both countries, which has witnessed an increase in French support to Liberia.
In a release issued Thursday, July 8, 2021, the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism said the consignment will arrive at the Roberts International Airport. The release noted that Deputy Justice Minister, Nyenati Tuan, and Police Inspector General, Patrick Sudue, will take delivery of the items on behalf of the government of Liberia.
The donation follows President George M. Weah’s recent trip to Paris, and comes at a time when the Liberian security forces are complementing the efforts of health authorities to combat the spread of the third wave of the Coronavirus disease by enforcing the health regulations and protocols.
Meanwhile, the leadership of the Joint Security, headed by Justice Minister Frank Musa Dean, has expressed the appreciation of the Liberian leader to His Excellency, President Emmanuel Macron, for his country’s timely logistical support and pledged to ensure that the items are used for the intended purpose.
