"It is only this government that is bringing the issues of the past. The U.S. State Department gave testimony during hearings of my asylum application after my student visas expired absolving me from any personal responsibility of this and testimony resulted in me being granted asylum in the US. The U.S. State Department provided records of my whereabouts during the NPRC administration and did not place me at the scene of the killings".

 

- JULIUS MAADA BIO IN JULY 23RD 2012 TERVIEW WITH THE PRO-SLPP NEW PEOPLE NEWSPAPER

               -------------------------------------

 

When I went there at night, he had actually tortured them very seriously their ears were cut off and they were practically dead. SAJ realised that by daybreak they had been really badly tortured in his compound; so he confronted the gruesome, it was better to do away with them, than to keep them on his hands in this terrible state. Maada Bio lamented their inability to put the coup plotters through proper judicial process, that was the darkest side of our whole period in power.
