Gov’t Constitutes Committee to Probe Mittal/Solway Noise in Nimba

by newsmanager

MONROVIA: The Government of Liberia (GOL) has expressed grave concern over ongoing protest and tension within some communities of ArcelorMittal Liberia’s (AML) concession area in Nimba County.

These activities have led to disruptions in the company’s operations and free movements of our citizens.

Accordingly, the Government has constituted an inter-ministerial committee with a mandate to engage all parties involved to find an immediate solution to the situation.

The Committee comprises the Ministries of Internal Affairs, Justice, Mines and Energy, and Labor along with the National Bureau of Concessions.

The Government fully supports the legal right to protest. However, citizens must be mindful of the need for investments that create jobs and provide livelihood for the Liberia people. The Government also frowns on the misuse of traditional and cultural institutions to intimidate citizens and foreign residents.

According to press release issued by the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT), “there are legitimate channels to express grievances and the Government therefore urges all parties involved to tread the path of dialogue through the established grievance channels in seeking redress.”

The GOL assures AML and all investors of its commitment to maintaining peace and security in their operational areas.
