Foreign Diplomatic Missions in Sierra Leone call for ease in Political tensions


A joint statement has been released by five foreign diplomatic institutions in Sierra Leone to dwindle down the political tension in the country. These institutions included the Embassy of the United Kingdom in Sierra Leone, European Union Mission in Sierra Leone, United States Embassy, the German Embassy, and the Irish Embassy in Sierra Leone.

The statement was seen released at around 09:35 PM on the official Facebook page of the UK in Sierra Leone. It could be recalled that there was a rise in political tension in the country after a High Court judge ruled that ten (10) Members of Parliament from the opposition All People’s Congress Party should lose their Parliamentary seats, the verdict left the opposition party (APC) to lose the majority grip it had in Parliament this led to a fracas between the Sierra Leone Police and some members of the opposition party APC at their party office in Freetown.
