The Association of Female Lawyers of Liberia (AFELL) says it condemns in the strongest possible terms the brutal and barbaric murder of the late Joyce Out-Jawheh which incident occurred about a fortnight ago in the Congo town area.
AFELL says it is appalled by the gruesome nature of the crime against the deceased. According to the women lawyers, the brutality of the murder suggests that the perpetrators harbored deep-seated hatred and malice for the victim.
The incident also reveals the vulnerability of ordinary citizens in a fragile security environment. According to AFELL, what is even more disturbing and appalling is the fact that the police have not been able to apprehend those responsible for this heinous crime nearly two weeks ago.
AFELL is therefore calling upon all well-meaning persons to assist the police with any information which they may have that could lead to the apprehension of the perpetrators of this barbaric crime.
meanwhile, AFELL has extended its heart-felt sympathy and condolences to the family of the deceased.
