Journalists, lawyers or government officials who make use of their right to free speech and express legitimate concerns about the Ebola vaccine trials currently underway in Liberia have been threatened with arrest by the Deputy Minister for Information, Isaac Jackson.
Jackson made the threat at a press conference when it emerged that 42 adverse reactions have been recored among the first 108 people to take the Ebola vaccine.
Jackson made the completely unproven claim that the vaccine trial would help Liberia to fight Ebola.
Liberians must charge and arrest Isaac Jackson for incitement to commit criminal acts and for threatening the constitutional rights of Liberians to freedom of speech, freedom of the press, informed consent in vaccine trials and their right to self defence. To damage someone with an experimental Ebola vaccine is a crime. Forty two people have already been damaged by the Ebola vaccine.
