Her Honor, Judge Nancy Sammy of the Liberia Supreme Court has ordered the immediate arrest of the country’s Inspector General (IG) of Police Patrick Sudue for contempt of court.

The Writ from the Civil Law Court is predicated upon what the court termed as refusal of Police IG Sudue to appear before the Independent National Commission on Human Rights to provide accountability of the July 26, 2022 protest in front the US Embassy.
