CC: Speaker and Senate Pro-TempLiberia National Legislature, Republic of LiberiaSubject: Letter of Complaint for Safety Issues at the Roberts International AirportDear Sir/Madam,My name is Massa Dopoh, a born and raised Liberian residing in the United States of America, Delaware. I am writing this letter to officially complain about the hazardous conditions and constant irregular safety issues at the Roberts International Airport in Monrovia, Liberia. Unfortunately, Liberia’s Roberts International Airport is constantly endangering the lives of innocent passengers traveling to and from Liberia daily. It is nice to know that the purpose of the GASP is to continually reduce fatalities, and the risk of fatalities, by guiding the development of a harmonized aviation safety strategy, regional aviation safety plans and national aviation safety plans. It was rerouted in the air for 35 mins due to fire at the Roberts International Airport.
