LNP Spokesman Denies Suspension

Moses Carter: “This has made me know, to some extent, my real friends.

The spokesperson of the Liberia National Police (LNP), Moses Carter, has refuted rumours that he has been suspended by Police Inspector General Col. Patrick Sudue. 

On his official social media page, Carter said, "For the record, I have not received any written suspension from the LNP nor have I received any verbal suspension from the LNP." Wherever this information is coming from, I don’t know! "

He also used the medium to thank all who have called and continue to call to express concerns about the unconfirmed information, adding that, “This has made me know, to some extent, my real friends.”

On early Friday, August 5, the Daily Observer was informed that the LNP spokesperson was suspended for administrative reasons.

The report, based on information gathered from the Press and Public Affairs office of the LNP, said that Carter's suspension was a direct verbal order from the Inspector General.

However, the main reason for his purported suspension remains unknown, but information from sources said his suspension is linked to recent public statements relating to the July 26 political violence perpetrated by the CDC-COP against members of the SUP.

Meanwhile, responding to the public outcry for the arrest of perpetrators of the violence and humiliation of SUP member Christopher W. Sivili, Carter told the public that police could not affect any arrests at the time because there was no complainant in the case.
