As a donator and with one of its directors sitting at Civitas Maxima's executive Board, INOKS Capital is proud and pleased to relay this landmark verdict. 'Seven Liberian plaintiffs have made legal history, both in Switzerland and Liberia, as they persisted in their quest for justice for over seven years. The Swiss Federal Criminal Court issued a landmark verdict against Alieu Kosiah (...), following years of investigation which started in 2014. The former Liberian battalion commander of the ULIMO (United Liberation Movement of Liberia for Democracy) rebel faction during the First Liberian Civil War was found guilty in relation to all but 4 counts. Kosiah was sentenced to 20 years in prison, from which his over 6 years of pre-trial detention will be deducted, and was ordered to pay over 50,000 CHF to the seven plaintiffs who testified against him.'

This is good news, since such an active approach can contribute to changing behaviour. ” To read SSF's report in which INOKS participated, please click below.Learn more
