-Urey Wants It Revisited, Perpetrated Account for Actions
The standard-bearer of the opposition All Liberian Party (ALP), Benoni Urey said the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) was wrongly carried out in the country.

Urey claimed that the commission was occupied by individuals who according to him were prime suspects and major actors in the Liberian civil crisis, and as such he wants the entire TRC report revisited.

“The TRC was not done rightly; we had main actors in our civil war who were members of the TRC. We must revisit the TRC so that every person that participated in the war must have their days in court,” Urey stressed.
He made the assertion Thursday, August 17, 2017 at a national presidential debate ahead of the October’s polls organized by the Deepening Democracy Coalition (DDC) held at the Paynesville City Hall outside Monrovia.
The All Liberian Party political leader stated that he thinks this was done in order to exonerate certain individuals from the process, something he feels should not and must not happen in the country.
At the same time, Urey asserted among other things that some of those within government are not supposed to be there because in his mind, they do not represent the interest of the Liberian people.
Commenting on the Code of Conduct, Urey frown at the Supreme Court for its recent decision in the Liberty Party (LP), vice standard, Harrison Karnwea verses the National Elections Commission (NEC) in favor of Karnwea.
He voiced that the Court had no business taking the kind of decision it took, something which according to him has led to such action taken by the House of Representatives to impeach three Associates Justices of the Supreme Court, even though he clarified that the impeachment proceeding is not the best way out.
Urey also asserted that under an ALP government, he would deal with corruption very drastically, as his administration ensures that those found guilty of corrupt practices would be publicly disgraced.
The ALP's political leader said he will take the issue of corruption seriously if elected president of the country, saying corruption has greatly affected the country at all levels.
“I will prosecute corrupt officials at all levels. Corrupt officials will wear prison shirts if they are found guilty of corruption because they deserved it,” Urey stressed.
Meanwhile, he has vowed that none of his immediate family members would ever work in government when he is elected as Liberia’s next president.
