|Leroy Archie Ponpon|
Human rights activist Leroy Archie Ponpon is accusing some officials of government of threatening his life.
“My three-day hunger strike action was about Liberians’ right to information about their public officials’ assets. I want the President [George Weah] and his supporter to know that I don’t need job. I just want the President and his officials to declare their assets.”
He also accused Chief Justice Francis Korkpor of intimidating him on the job, “The threat on my life is coming from everywhere.”Ponpon also added that the Chief Justice has threatened to dismiss him from his job and has instructed Court officers assigned in his office to monitor his (Archie’s) daily activities at the court.
“The Chief Justice has intensified his intimidation of me and has threatened my dismissal. Every time, I see people coming to ask about whether I am at job; this is strange. This is intimidation because of asset declaration advocacy that I put up,” Ponpon stated.
