Liberia, with the help of the United Nations continues to rebuild after a civil war in the 1990's which killed hundreds of thousands of people and led to complete breakdown in law and order.

As part of the rebuilding efforts, the Liberian government inaugurated the first justice and security hub in Gbarnga, Bong County.

With over $13 million provided by the UN Peacebuilding Support Office, the government plans to open five regional justice and security hubs so that citizens throughout the country can have access to justice.

To find out more about this project, UN Radio's Donn Bobb sat down with Judy Cheng- Hopkins, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Peace-building who recently returned from a mission to Liberia.
