As the Libyan capital “Tripoli” slips from the grasp of the Libyan military under the leadership of a notoriously unpredictable man, Moammar Gadhafi, Operation We Care for Liberia (OWCL) call on H.E. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia and the entire Liberian government to reject any asylum request from members of Colonel Gadhafi’s fighting forces including Gadhafi himself.Information reaching us suggests that asylum talks are currently going on between President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and members of Gadhafi’s inner circle. We believe that any communication from President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to Colonel Gadhafi at this time would jeopardize the little peace Liberia is experiencing. Aiding Gadhafi in any way would not be in the best interest of Liberia and West Africa.
Gadhafi’s actions on his own people are unacceptable, undemocratic, inexcusable, and not in the interest of peace in Africa.
Lastly, we call upon the International Criminal Court (ICC) to immediately arrest and trial Col. Muammar Gadhafi for crimes against humanity to include those perpetrated against the Liberian people. Gadhafi’s complicity and tacit sponsorship of the 14-year carnage in Liberia snuffed out the lives of over 250,000 innocent Liberians and left thousands maimed and psychologically damaged.
