For Growing Wave Of Prostitution In Liberia, Gender Minister Williametta Piso Saydee-Tarr And Police Inspector General Patrick Saydue To Appear Before House
The House of Representative will invite Gender Minister Williametta Piso Saydee-Tarr And Police Inspector General Patrick Saydue to answer questions over the growing wave of Prostitution in Liberia.
The Lower House’s decision followed a communication from Bong County Representative Moima Briggs-Mensah urging that the two officials appear before plenary to explain causes for the non-enforcement of Chapter 8, sub-session 1-9 of the penal code of Liberia.
Representative Mensah added that the alarming rate of prostitution in the country violates the penal code of Liberia, which among other things speaks of offenses against public morality.
But, Representative Francis Dorpoh of River Gee in reaction to the communication cautioned that the issues of prostitution in Liberia be discussed void of sentiments because it has some revenue implication.
Following the debate, plenary overwhelmingly endorsed a motion proffered by Maryland County Representative Isaac Roland craving that Gender Minister Willametta Saydee Tarr and Police Inspector General Patrick Sudue appear before that August body after the Independence Day celebration
