Respect for Human Rights: The Condition for Collective Security and Peace in Liberia (Speech)
www.theliberianjournal.com, 21 Dec 2011 [cached]
The Government of President Sirleaf has the best opportunity to lay a firm foundation for the respect for human rights and other tenants of democracy, including good governance.
...
The first step, I advise, would be the removal by the President of Mr. Robert Sirleaf from at least one of the two positions that he occupies now, if not both of them. It is inconsistent with every tenant of good governance for Mr. Robert Sirleaf to be a senior advisor to the President and at the same time serve as member of the board of directors of the National Oil Company of Liberia. This is a clear conflict of interest in every way. It is important for the President to correct this situation before she takes her oath of office for her second term in office. Mr. Sirleaf has made laudable contributions to the young people of this country by building football stadiums in many communities in Liberia for which every well-meaning Liberian is appreciative. He is bringing happiness to the young people of Liberia unlike Chucky Taylor who brought them sorrow. However, his presence in government in the current roles he occupies undermines these great contributions. This is a matter that many are whispering about. But as I have said before, I cannot whisper about matters that affect my country. Going forward, it is important that President Sirleaf makes it clear by her actions that she intends to lay a firm foundation for making human rights the most cherished national value in Liberia. I suggest to her to make it clear that no media institution will be closed again under her administration for what it publishes because her government promotes the multiplicity of media institutions and that in such situation no one media has sufficient power to influence any negative conduct. Clearly, unlike before when Liberia had two radio stations, Liberia now has multiple radio and TV stations, with one radio station in almost every district of Liberia. In a situation like that, no media institution has the potential of posing threat to peace and security. I also suggest that in addition to the freedom of information act, the President submits a bill to the legislature to repeal the laws on sedition, criminal libel against the President and criminal malevolence. These are gag laws. We cannot build a vibrant democracy and still have laws that inhibit free speech. To the memory of the Late Albert Porte, who advocated unsuccessfully for the repeal of these laws, I appeal to President Sirleaf to seek their repeal.

National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL) Board Chair, Mr. Robert A. Sirleaf, has strongly rejected claims by his critics that his chairmanship at NOCAL is intended to enrich himself and misuse oil revenue belonging to the people of Liberia.
The NOCAL Board Chair has, in a strong-worded statement, hit back at his critics accusing them of protecting their selfish interest in oil deals involving foreign companies.
Speaking yesterday at a press briefing held at NOCAL's head offices in Monrovia, Mr. Sirleaf emphatically said that he won't resign as NOCAL's Board Chair until he completes his mission to reform the institution. He said there is nothing wrong him, as son of the President, to work for his country.
"I can help my country, if by the privilege and responsibility of being the son of the President and the trust that it brings, I can help our President succeed in her ambitious agenda of transformation, and if I turn away because it will cause me personal pain or draws political criticisms, what would be the value of my birth right?"
Mr. Sirleaf wondered what would be the value of his relationship with the Liberian people if he resigned; noting "I made the right choice in remaining steadfast. I owe Liberia, me!"
The President's son vowed he won't apologize for bringing his best effort to recreate a friendly petroleum sector in Liberia.
"At NOCAL, we will unapologetically bring our best effort to recreate a petroleum sector that is friendly to investors and, at the same time, beneficial to Liberians."
Mr. Sirleaf accused Rep.
...
Reluctant to mention Snowe's name, Mr. Sirleaf explained "I want it to be made clear that the House member asked me to participate. The President agreed to accord the Representative the courtesy and met with the GPB Executive.
Mr. Sirleaf added "it was then, and still is now ethically wrong, for the Representative to have participated in the meeting with President and the representatives of a private company seeking an investment opportunity," he noted.
...
Rep Snowe, last week, accused Mr. Sirleaf of running the country's oil sector as a one-man show.
Rep. Snowe also attacked President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for conniving with his son, Robert Sirleaf, to deny GAZPROM Oil bloc LB# 13.
...
Snowe told reporters that Mr. Sirleaf and his mother chose to deny the Russian company against the interest of the Liberian people."
...
But Mr. Sirleaf exposed the Montserrado lawmaker for actively representing the interest of a foreign company seeking to invest in Liberia's oil bloc #13, citing a conflict of interest.
Mr. Sirleaf pointed out that such action by a sitting legislator represents ethical breach and falls short of transparency and best practices.
"I will not participate in deals from which few will get richer and the life of the ordinary man, woman, and child stays stagnated," he said.
Though the NOCAL Board Chair did not actually mention Rep Snowe's name in his press statement, he told a crowded press briefing that fronting for companies won't be allowed under his chairmanship at NOCAL.
"There is a clear line---at least, some of us think there ought to be one---between a lawmaker inviting a company to invest in Liberia and actively representing said company," he said.
...
Rep. Snowe recently admitted making representation for GAZPROM with President Sirleaf,
...
y believe is that if Robert Sirleaf not serving as chair of NOCAL Mr, Snow would have gotton filty rich on the backs of the LIberian people. e have forgotton how Mr, Snow wrote false checks to banks in Monrovia and withdrew them in the name of LPRC, I guess he did'nt think that Robert Sirleaf had the intergrity to have resisted this kind of offer. Oh! So now Robert Sirleaf is not a Liberian. Stand your ground Bob, Liberians will soon realize that there are still a few decent Liberians left.
...
That guy, Robert Sirleaf is stealing Liberia's wealth and we need to get him out. If he thinks he is above all liberians then he is joking. We will get him. He shouldn't thinl Liberians are stupid.
...
Robert Sirleaf's insistence to hold on to chairman of NOCAL is, indeed, NOT a welcome thing for Liberia. Does he have the requisite qualification for the other than having a contact with the Wall Street Bankers in New York, USA.as stated by his mother when she refuted the charge of NEPOTISM? Who has put money into the Wall Street Banking systems and got it back? Not a single country that Liberia is aware of. And certainly if Liberia relies on such contact of Robert Sirleaf's, the country will forever sorry economically and financially.
