A British Member of Parliament MP, accompanied by British law school students and legal consultants from the United Kingdom, Thursday visited the parliament in Sierra Leone as part of their continuous assessment of Commonwealth of States member countries and to know the developmental projects that have been undertaken in the country.
Hon. Stephen Crabb thanked Sierra Leone MPs for the warm welcome given him and his delegates and stated that the visit to the Sierra Leone Parliament is part of his group's continuous work around the world.
"As a leader of the delegates, we have organized a project group known as Umbanda which brings together young people around the world. The project has different types of work skills to train people under the age of 25 years," he said pointing out that some of these trainings include basic health care, advocacy skills, child rights and human rights which will all last for two weeks.
Hon. Crabb added that his group decided to visit Sierra Leone to help strengthen and provide good knowledge to young people because Sierra Leone is a member of the Commonwealth of States and a very peaceful country.
The Deputy Clerk of Parliament, Mohamed Lebbie, welcomed the visiting group to the Sierra Leone Parliament and conducted a short tour of the House.
