It has therefore pleased his Excellency the president to establish a coroner’s inquiry to look into the respective circumstances that led to the death of civilians in Bo, Bumbuna and Wellington on the diverse dates mentioned above, pursuant to the coroner’s act chapter 9 of the laws of Sierra Leone 1960 as amended.
The coroner is empowered to make recommendations as to the culpability of any person or persons or organizations including committal for trial before the high court for any offences that may be disclosed by the inquiry.
The general public is assured that modalities have been put in place for the speedy conclusion of this task. The cooperation of all is hereby solicited and government continues to entreat all concerned to exercise patience.
