Yekeh ‘Banned’

…Court Threatens To Arrest Him If…

Barely a day after surrendering himself to the court for prosecution, Montserrado County District#10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah and six others have been banned by Criminal Court ‘A’ leaving the country.

Judge Roosevelt Willie of Criminal Court ‘A’ at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia Wednesday, June 28, 2019, stopped the lawmaker and others from travelling out of Liberia following a Petition for a Writ of Ne-Exeat Republica filed by Montserrado County Chief Prosecutor, Counsellor Edwin Martin.

The Judge agreed with the Montserrado County Chief’s Prosecutor that Rep. Kplubah and others were ‘flight risk’ that could avoid prosecution at the call of their case at Criminal Court ‘A’.

Our correspondent further said Judge Willie also ordered state securities at various entry points to arrest the living body of Representative Kolubah, Mohammad Keita, Abu Keita, Oliver Konneh, Johnson Kpor and Mohammad Kaba if they attempt leaving the bailiwick of Liberia.

The court’s mandate comes a day after the District#10 lawmaker surrendered himself to the jurisdiction of Criminal Court ‘A’ to face criminal prosecution at Criminal Court ‘A’ during the August Term of Court.
