LINCSA chairman, Marvin Momboe Sarkor-Says National Commission on Small Arms ChairmanBy Charlotte Kruah, Student, UL Mass Communication Department The chairman of the Liberia National Commission on Small Arms (LINCSA), Marvin Momboe Sarkor, has assured Liberians that the country’s borders will not be used for illegal trafficking of illicit arms and light weapons.According to him, Liberians have no reason to fear as the Commission is working with international partners, including Great Britain, USA, ECOWAS and many others to ensure that they help formulate policies and appropriate programs aimed at combating the proliferation of small arms and light weapons across the country.Chairman Sarkor explained that the Commission has set up a national control system which is intended to ensure that weapons brought in Liberia are not diverted to other countries for the use of arms conflict.He said LiNCSA and partners are working to help make their respective countries and people live peacefully, void of armed conflict.Sarkor said small arms and light weapons have a negative impact on society, especially reflecting on Liberia’s dark past and, as such, he called on civilians who are in possession of illegal weapons to peacefully turn it over to the Liberia National Police.He said the constant wave of illegal small arms by unauthorized persons is embarrassing for the security of the state because they are putting in place practical measures to help combat the flow of illicit small arms and light weapons in Liberia.Under the laws of Liberia only security institutions and personnel to include the Liberia National Police (LNP) the Liberia Immigration Service (LIS), the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (LDEA), the Executive Protective Service (EPS) and other personnel assigned with the President of Liberia, among others, are allowed to carry arms.However, civilians are to use single barrel guns and for exclusively hunting purposes, he indicated.Sarkor said Liberia is a signatory to the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), an international governing body charged with the responsibility of controlling arms, especially conventional arms.Sarkor represented Liberia a week ago in Equatorial Guinea on the ban of fossil materials to produce nuclear weapons and explosives, though Liberia does not have uranium.This article is published as an assignment from the UL Mass Communication Department.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
