As a past defense spokesman of the disbanded National Patriotic Front of Liberia, Jucontee Thomas Woewiyu was one of Liberia’s notable and outspoken former warlords.
The Truth and Reconciliation Commissionâ€™s final report recorded 30 massacres in River Cess, making it the county with the second highest number of mass killings during the wars. Only Lofa saw more. But people here in River Cess say there were many more massacres that the TRC did not cover.
Thomas Woewiyu, a former Defense Minister under former President Charles Taylor and a leader of the defunct National Patriotic Front of Liberia, has been found guilty of violating multiple U.S. immigration laws.
Former Defense Minister Thomas Woewiyu began trial on Monday in Philadelphia on multiple charges of immigration fraud, perjury and false statements about his naturalization.
