Civil society organisations are stepping up to calls for the establishment of the Independent National Commission on Human Rights of Liberia (INHC). The commission will take over from and implement recommendations advanced by that country’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).
Amongst other things, CSOs are calling on the government to urgently take appropriate measures aimed at resolving this concern for the speedy reconstitution and operation of the Independent National Commission on Human Rights within the next 60 days as of 23 July 23 2009.
CSOs are also urging the government to recognise civil society as an integral part of any reconstitution process, and as such involve her in all deliberations, consultations, and meetings intended to resolve the matter.
