The lower house of Liberias bicameral legislature on Tuesday ratified the ECOWAS Convention on the proliferation of small arms in the sub-region.

The ratification of the ECOWAS convention is part of the process to make it a part of Liberian law which must be upheld.

The ECOWAS Convention on the proliferation of small arms was promulgated by the Economic Community of West African States to discourage conflict, terrorism and hijacking in the sub-region.

The plenary of the lower house ratified the convention during its Tuesday session. The upper house (senate) has to however also pass it before the convention becomes part of Liberian law.
