Liberia: No chance for a lasting peace without effective human rights guarantees
While welcoming the recent peace agreement signed by parties to the conflict in Liberia under the aegis of the UN, AI is seriously concerned by the omission of conditions obliging the warring parties and any future government to respect human rights and bring to justice those responsible for abuses. The accord makes no recommendations about the reporting and investigation of gross human rights abuses; no effective steps have been taken to investigate even the most serious atrocities of 1993, such as the killing of almost 600 civilians at Harbel in June. AI's recommendations to parties to the conflict, any future transitional government and to the UN, ECOWAS and the OAU are included.
