Liberia: The Liberian government, through the Independent National Commission on Human Rights (INCHR) is preparing to take legal action against the Liberia Cement Corporation (Cemenco) for allegations of pollution from its operations in Monrovia.

"We have completed all medical examinations on dozens of residents in the Belema Community. Doctors have established that indeed the cement dust being produced by the company is responsible for their disability and lung infections," said INCHR Commissioner, James D Torh. He added that the INCHR was resolved to reap millions of dollars in damages for residents dating as far back as the time CEMENCO was established in 1968.
