UNICEF Criticizes UN Sanctions on Liberia

150 150 Rapaport News

(Rapaport…September 4, 2001) UNICEF says UN sanctions against Liberia harm the ordinary population more than the government because they slow the flow of badly needed international aid.

“We know fewer children are going to school, while healthcare and education facilities are constantly deteriorating,” said Mac Arthur Hill, UNICEF spokesman.

Sanctions against Liberia’s diamond exports went into effect in May as a result of Liberia’s alleged failure to sever ties with Sierra Leone’s Revolutionary United Front (RUF).
