-Says They Remain Engaged With Legal Process
The Liberia National Students Union (LINSU) has distanced itself from recent protest by some aggrieved students believed to be members that body. A large number of students said to be part of LINSU on December 11, 2017 staged a roaring protest in Monrovia to demand the trial of the former student leader Varney Jersay.

Having paraded Monrovia’s busiest streets, they students settled their protest in front of the Foreign Ministry, which hosts the president. Jersay a year ago was taken to court for allegedly raping a 13 year old girl in the Mamba Point community, claims he has since denied.

Jersay who languishes behind bars at the Monrovia Central Prison is yet to be processed through the law in order to prove his guilt or innocence. The aggrieved students threatened to continue their action until the Jersay was given a speedy trial.
But speaking to this paper Tuesday in Paynesville, the newly inducted President, Matthias Yeanay said the protest was not the work of the institution which he said remains engaged with the rule of law.
Yeanay said while they are interested in a speedy trial of the former student leader, they would not engage in any action, order than the legal process. He noted that it is a court process therefore they as student body will remain engage in the process legally and are going to remain supportive to Jarsey morally throughout the case. Matthias Yeanay narrates “We are careful in that the alleged victim; is a member of LINSU. When I say member of LINSU that mean she is a student so, being a student, and the alleged victim, and the former president being the one who allegedly committed the act, we think that it is a reason for us to be careful and call for the speedy adjudication of the case.”
“The institution did not organize any protest as being speculated; rather it is aggrieved friends and students of the president just I am his comrade,” Yeanay said. He therefore urged students to be law-abiding and stable, stressing “this is a matter that has been on the docket of the court.”
LINSU calls on the Court to speedily trial the students leader, while also calls on its members to remain calm as they remain engaged in the legal process. “As a Liberian National Students Union, we call for the speedy trial of Varney Jersay. We do not support protest, we do not support rape. We will not support any act of violence against women. We know that it was an allegation, he should be given a day in court to vindicate himself,” he added.
