President Sirleaf Consoles Queen Elizabeth II


President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sent a message of condolence to Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on the sad occasion of the death of Mrs. Jo Cox, Member of the British Parliament, who was killed on Thursday, June 16.

Mrs. Cox, 41, died after she was shot and stabbed in a “horrific” assault in her constituency in Birstall, North West Yorkshire. She is the first sitting MP to be killed since 1990, when Ian Gow was the last in a string of politicians to die at the hands of Northern Irish terror groups.

According to a Foreign Affairs Ministry release, in her message President Sirleaf said, “We are shocked and extremely disheartened to have learned of the atrocious murder of the Rt. Hon. Mrs. Jo Cox, Labor MP for Batley Spen of the United Kingdom, adding, “We deeply regret her passing, however, we are consoled by her immense contribution to democracy, particularly her unwavering compassionate campaign for the world’s underprivileged.”

On behalf of the Government and People of Liberia and in her own name, the President extended deepest sympathy and prayed that God will grant Her Majesty, the family of the victim and the people of the United Kingdom, the fortitude to endure the unbearable and irreparable loss.
