AMMAN — Karin Landgren, the UN secretary general’s special representative of and coordinator of UN Operations in Liberia has lauded members of the Jordanian Formed Police Unit 1(FPU) for the critical role they have played in implementing the UN Mission in Liberia’s (UNMIL) mandate to support the government and people of Liberia in their efforts to consolidate peace and develop their country.

“Since their deployment in 2003, the members of the Jordanian Formed Police Unit have demonstrated a great sense of responsibility and professionalism in carrying out their duties… each and every one of them, playing a crucial role in Liberia’s peace process,” a UNMIL statement quoted Landgren as saying at a medal award ceremony held at the German embassy in Monrovia on Wednesday.

The UN envoy particularly thanked the FPU for enhancing security at the Monrovia Central Prison and praised their humanitarian activities such as providing free medical outreach services and food to inmates at the prison and local communities.
