Liberia: Cllr. Pierre, Others Have No Right Over Holiday Inn - Says Clara Town, West Point Youth

Few days following the publication of stories in several local dailies that some people have expressed interest in leasing the Holiday Inn Hotel on Carey Street, scores of youths including men and women from Clara Town and West Point communities issued a release calling on the Justice Ministry and the entire judicial system in the country not to allow jungle justice in the process.

Speaking to journalists on Caret Street within the vicinity of the hotel, the youth through their leader, Moses Kollie, Jr. said it will be unfair to the proprietor of the Holiday Inn Hotel to be treated in such an ugly manner by some unrealistic individuals who may want to use the legal system as their personal property. The hotel in question is not for Cllr. James A. Pierre or any other persons for that matter, but remains within the purview of the legal system until the matter is adjudicated.

"We want to state in this public manner that we the youth will not sit and allow the efforts of this friendly businessman and humanitarian, Mr. H.M. Jawhary to go in vain because of unfair justice," the youth spokesman said.

"Mr. Jawhary has helped many Liberians, even during the war days, he made available his hotel to accommodate thousands of Liberians, provided free food and water and the first businessman to call on the international community to quickly come and help Liberians because they were dying, so we will call on thousands of our friends to watch the process, as anything to the contrary of the legal proceedings will not be in the interest of the country. "Only fair justice can satisfy all parties," the youth said.
