The Guardian: Liberian leader urges MPs to back action against vulture funds
Liberia's president calls on MPs to support bill that would bar vulture funds from pursuing debts of poorer nations in UK courts
By Heather Stewart and Greg PalastEllen Johnson Sirleaf, the president of Liberia, is urging MPs to back a bill banning vulture funds from using British courts to prey on poor countries when it comes to a vote on Friday .
