Liberia’s President Joseph Boakai has finally taken action to create a war crimes court, a move awaited for over two decades since the end of the country’s brutal civil wars.

This step aims to deliver justice and healing to a nation scarred by the loss of around a quarter of a million lives during the conflicts from 1989 to 2003.

These wars were marked by horrific acts like mass killings, rape, and the use of child soldiers.

While some fear the court may stir up painful memories, others see it as crucial for addressing past wrongs and moving forward.
