Liberia's TRC Recommends President Resign

Hosted by

Liberians call her "Ellen," and to both admirers and critics, she's the "Iron Lady." Now, Liberia's Truth and Reconciliation Commission calls for Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to resign. Today, after three years of hearing testimony from thousands affected by the country's 14 year-long civil war, the TRC released its final report. Among its recommendations are that Africa's current – and first female president –be banned from office for 30 years. Emira Woods is co-director of Foreign Policy in Focus at the Institute for Policy Studies.
