M’land Lawmaker Wants Justice Explain Plight Of Girls…Sent To Lebanon As “Sex Slaves”
Maryland County Representative, Bhofal Chambers, has written Plenary of the House of Representatives to invite three Ministries to provide update on the status of the Liberian girls who were brought back from Lebanon.
In a communication to Plenary dated July 9, 2015, a copy of which was obtained by The INQUIRER, the Maryland County lawmaker wants the Ministers of Justice, Foreign Affairs, Labor and Gender, Children and Social Protection to inform that august body on the fate of the Liberian ladies.
According to him, it has been several weeks now since the ladies were brought back and placed under the custody of government and, as such, it is important for them (lawmakers) to know as to what actions that have been taken to cater to their welfare and what is also being done to bring to justice the alleged traffickers here in the country along with their collaborators in Lebanon.
In recent times, the issue of some Liberian girls who were allegedly trafficked to Lebanon has been of major concern, something that compelled the Liberian government to bring back some of the girls.
Since their return to the country, their whereabouts have been a serious issue of concern though government has since clarified that the girls are back in the country and are under security protection.
