Liberia: Government Stops Henry Costa from Leaving the Country


MONROVIA – FrontPageAfrica has gathered that the Government of Liberia has stopped Mr. Henry Costa, Chairman of the Council of Patriots and an ardent critic of President George Weah from leaving the country.

FPA learned that the Liberia Immigration Service is alleging that Costa forged the laissez passé with which he travelled from Ghana to Liberia upon his return to the country to stage the December 30, 2019 protest which was deferred to January 6, 2020.

Immigration official speaking on condition of anonymity said Mr. Costa has not officially gone through processing out of fear after getting news of the plan to arrest him or prevent him from traveling.

But Mr. Costa, speaking FPA denied traveling on a fraudulent laissez passé and confirmed that he was prevented from traveling and told to surrender his passport but he refused.

According to him, he completed his ticketing process and was stopped by immigration and was told he was being stopped on instruction from Ministry of Justice.
