George Boley, President Samuel Doe’s right-hand man, was arrested in January 2010 by the US immigration authorities. He was chargedwith lying in order to gain entry into the U.S., and with committing extrajudicial killings while in another country. Boley, who denied the accusations, was in custody for two years. In 2012 he was deported from the USA – the official reason for his deportation was his role in the recruitment and use of child soldiers – and sent back to Liberia where he is a free man, despite one of the main recommendations of Liberia’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) to prosecute him for war crimes together with a number of other Liberian warlords. In 2017 he was elected in the House of Representatives, representing Grand Gedeh County, his home county.
