MONROVIA – Some officers of the Executive Protection Services (EPS) have threatened to carry out what they call a wildcat protest that will hold the headquarters of the Service hostage before the transition if their 30% mutual aid benefit is not paid.
EPS is an elite force that protects VIPs, including the President, Vice President, and other international visiting guests.
It has been a tradition for members of that body to make a remittance of their monthly salary, which was intended to be distributed among them at the end of the first tenure of President George M. Weah.
Contrary to their quest, reports have it that the fund for the over 800 EPS officers was mismanaged by the Trokon Roberts administration and James E. G. Helb, the son of former EPS director Victor Helb, who left Liberia after reportedly mismanaging the fund along with Mr. Roberts.
As for this set of officers, the initiative of deducting $20 from their monthly salary began in 2018 and should have continued to 2023. According to the source, in 2021, there was an issue that brought about dissatisfaction, and the process was stopped.
“In times of difficulty, we used to credit at an interest of 5%, an interest which accumulated additional money for the aid fund, but to get our own money has become a serious problem for us,” the informer said.
Those who joined the mutual aid in 2018 are expected to get a little over $400 USD, while those who joined in 2019 are expected to receive a sum over $300 USD. “They took the money and bought land which they were reselling to pay back our money. We planned an early protest at which time the Ministry of Finance intervened and paid 70%,” an informer told this reporter.
The intention of the mutual aid was to have it disbursed at the end of the first tenure of President George M. Weah, but it did not work as they anticipated. According to our sources at EPS, a statement confirmed by Mr. Philip Moore in an interview months ago said the money was taken for land purchasing, and those who were clothed with the responsibility to manage the fund were trying to retrieve the money.
When Mr. Moore was recently contacted via WhatsApp and regular call to speak to the planned protest but declined on grounds that he does not have adequate information about it, Mr. Moore then referenced the journalist to the Administrator of EPS, Osel Williams. Mr. Williams said they are working to ensure that the money is paid and that an investigation was ongoing.
Still, when he was asked which institution was conducting said investigation, he didn’t say but also pushed the responsibility at the feet of Madam Esther P. Chea, the mismanaged mutual aid fund, as the best person to ask.
When contacted, Madam Chea via a regular cell phone call, she said, “I do not speak for the EPS. Since I started working for the EPS many years ago, I have never spoken for the EPS.” All of the authorities at the EPS have declined to speak to the disenchantment of the men and women in arms at this critical time of the country.
The officers who spoke on annuity said if their money is not paid this December, they will disrupt the smooth transition process of power.
The officers said since the money issue became a problem, the EPS administration has been promising them to pay, but each time they make a promise, they don’t make good on their promises.
The EPS agent said, “The account was a joint account under three signatories, James E G Helb, James B. Paye, and Alexander T. Togba, and the mutual aid was chaired by Esther P. Chea, chief of the training and fi****ms division, and Emmanuel P. Wesseh, auditor to the mutual aid.”
According to the source, with all of those connected to the fund, it was not possible for one person to corrupt the money. “This is something that Mr. Roberts’ administration planned.” “We have been using the easy means to get our money, but you know in Liberia, officials love for people to protest before attention is given,” another agent said.
A message was placed to EPS boss, Trokon Roberts via WhatsApp, but he has not responded, and if he does, the article will be updated. The investigation continues.

SEN. PRINCE JOHNSON COMPLAINS ABOUT ATTACK.
"To My Fellow Nimbain and Supporters.
In the town of Gbor-Wheiplay, situated in District #4 of Nimba County, I experienced an attack orchestrated by the representative of that district, Hon Gunpue L Kargon He is no longer the choice of the people due to his selfish representation, disobedient and disrespectful behavior towards the the people he represents.
I'm the one who helped him achieve his current position. Hon. Gunpue has received over 2 million dollars from the CDC government, which has failed to fulfill its promises to the Liberian people, including the payment of Nimba County's land rental fees amounting to 9 million United States Dollars.
This incident occurred during my campaign activities in that Nimba County region, a place I hold dear in my heart.
The attacks transpired when our campaign team visited a town named Sole Vayanglay. Here, CDC supporters, led by the head of the Good Governance Commission and former representative of District #4, Hon. Garrason D. Yealu (my own son, whom I propelled into Liberian politics), engaged in a clash with supporters of Rescue 2 and Unity Party Vice Standard Bearer, Hon. Jeremiah Kpan Koung Unfortunately, this clash resulted in the tragic death of a young man aged between 22 and 25 years upon his arrival at the hospital.
The situation escalated to such an extent that we were unable to find rest in Vayanglay Town that night. This was primarily due to the aggressive behavior exhibited by the CDC supporters, who fatally injured the young man by pelting him with rocks aimed at his abdomen.
As a devoted man of God and a senior senator representing the cherished people of Nimba County, my utmost priority is to maintain peace. My deep affection for my constituents compels me to avoid any form of conflict or violence.
This sentiment motivated us to put ourselves in danger back in 1990 when we courageously rescued our people from oppression. We do not wish to return to those days when our people were homeless and hungry due to the dire circumstances they faced.
See the damages they carried out on my car and my son was also wounded in the clash."

Gospel singer Richman reportedly apologized over the release of his s*x video.
"Hello everyone , it’s really a difficult time for me to see myself disappointing the people that believe in me, I messed up and let you all down including myself. I want to apologize from the bottom of my heart to God, my wife, my mom, my children, my religious family, my friends, my fans, everyone that got cut off by this situation and everyone that’s supportive of me for my recent actions.

Pls excuse my presence online for time indefinite, I really need time to get over this shame I’ve brought upon us, pls keep me and my family in ur prayers always, Thank you for sticking with me through thick and thin, God bless us all, Amen. 🙏❤️"

Some Bomi County Citizens boo President Weah for asking them to re-elect incumbent Senator Morris Saytumah; term the lawmaker as a failure .Some Citizens of Bomi County booed President George Weah for asking them to re-elect incumbent Senator Morris Saytumah.

However, in a defiant posture, the electorates continued their booing of the incumbent senator with some maintaining that their gathering was only to show support to the President.
The incumbent Lawmaker, who has spent nine years at the senate, is seeking re-election with critics saying he has failed to impact the lives of the country citizens.

Unity Party Cancels Press Conference to Name Full Rescue Mission Campaign Team
Unity Party has announced the cancellation of its planned press conference today due to what the party terms as massive traffic caused by the unexpected and unplanned activities of the CDC which has made Amb. Boakai and his entourage difficult to get to their party campaign headquarters. In a press release, the party said:
While en route to the UP’s National Campaign Headquarters as previously planned and scheduled to announce the additional and final campaign team and interact with partisans, supporters, and well-wishers of the Rescue Mission, the entourage of the UP’s Standard Bearer, Amb. Joseph N. Boakai encountered massive traffic caused by the unexpected and unplanned activities of the CDC.
Partisans and militants of the CDC disrupted the activities of UP partisans who had gathered at VAMOMA to welcome their Standard Bearer.
In view of the foregoing, UP Alliance’s Campaign has decided to postpone the planned press conference for the purpose of avoiding confrontation that could lead to violence between and among supporters of the two parties and also in observation of the Farmington Declaration.
The UP Alliance calls the attention of the National Elections Commission to this constant disruptive behavior of the CDC. We also call on our international partners to caution the CDC to abide by the Farmington Declaration.

COALITION FOR DEMOCRATIC CHANGE
Weah/Taylor 2023 National Campaign Committee
PLP Compound, Congo Town, Monrovia, Liberia
August 10, 2023
For Immediate Release
The attention of the Weah-Taylor 2023 National Campaign Committee has been drawn to false claims by the Unity Party (UP) which were contained in a press release published on Thursday, August 10, stating that partisans of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) disrupted activities of the Unity Party near the UP's Campaign office in Airfield Sinkor, Monrovia.
The Weah-Taylor 2023 Campaign Committee wishes to clarify that the CDC's ongoing district engagements of its standard bearer and Vice standard bearer, which were continuing on Thursday in Districts 9 and 10 of Montserrado County had been pre-announced a week ago on various national media platforms. The CDC also communicated its key campaign dates to the National Elections Commission.
Inspite of the prior announcement, the Weah-Taylor 2023 Campaign Committee, recognizing that the Unity Party was seeking to provoke violence by deliberately ignoring the CDC's prevailing Campaign Schedule snd going ahead to plan their own event on the same day, decided to postpone the prescheduled start of activities in District 9 for more than four hours to avoid any conflicts with UP Partisans who had announced a Press Conference for 10Am on Thursday.
As a result of the irresponsible and violent actions of the Unity Party, partisans of the Coalition for Democratic Change were brutalized by Unity Partisans during the activities today.
The Weah-Taylor 2023 Campaign Committee hereby calls the attention of the National Elections Commission, the United Nations Resident Coordinator, the office of the ECOWAS representative and other well meaning international partners to this flagrant provocation from the Unity Party and urges their timely intervention to avert future recurrence.
The Weah-Taylor 2023 Campaign Committee reassures its many partisans, well-wishers and ordinary Liberians that it will always remain peaceful and that it is committed to upholding the law and the tenets of the Farmington Declaration.

Supreme Court Place Stay Order In Unity Party Case .
July 5, 2023
The Associate Justice presiding in Chamber at the Supreme Court of Liberia Yamie Quiqui has placed a stay order in the case involving Unity Party and the Worjoloh McClian Enterprise, Inc chairman Dr.Fandolph McCain.
Associates Justice Quiqui's decision Tuesday, July 4, 2023, was based on a petition for the writ of prohibition filed by the Unity Party thru its Chairman, Amin Modada, and all other authorized representatives (petitioner) against Civil Law Court Judge J. Kennedy Peabody and Worjoloh McClian Enterprise, Inc chairman of the board McCain.
The stay order from Associates Quiqui urges Judge Peabody not to further proceed with the actions, pending the outcome of the conference. They are cited to a conference on Monday, July 10, 2023, at the hour of 10:00 am.
Judge Peabody stated, if the Unity Party fail to comply with the ruling the Sheriff of court is ordered to arrest the living bodies of the standard bearer of the Unity Party, along with the chairman of the Unity Party, the co-chairman of the Unity Party, the secretary general of the Unity Party and the Legal counsels and chairman on steering committee without notice to them and be brought before the court.
According to him, if the unity party refuses to pay the amount they will be incarcerated at the Monrovia Central Prison pending the satisfaction of the said judgment.
He further that a petition for summary proceedings to recover possession of the real property was filed before the court on February 23, 2021, against Unity Party, Chairman, and all those in authority.
Judge Peabody said subsequently, the court ruled on November 23, 2021, holding Unity Party liable and ordered the Sheriff of the court to evict Unity Party and possess the petitioner and that Unity Party should pay an arrear rent of $US180,000.00 and $US20,000.000 for wrongfully withholding said property.
According to him, the petitioner was placed in possession of the subject property and the key of said property was turned over to the petitioner.
The ruling said the petitioner prays the court for the issuance of the Writ of Ex*****on for the payment of $US200,000.00 as a result, the respondent Unity Party filed a petition for payment stipulation on June 14, 2022.
He revealed that the petition was heard by Judge Nancy Finda Sammy presiding Judge to pay 25% of the amount within a week on August 16, 2022. Again, based on the failure of the respondent Unity Party to live up to the mandate and ruling made on August 16, 2022, a second ruling was made on October 19, 2022, by Judge Nancy Finda Sammy.
Judge Peabody quoted a portion of Judge Sammy's ruling which says Unity Party was mandated to pay the sum of $US100,375.00 representing 50% of the judgment amount before October 31, 2022, as well as the total sum of $US500.00 representing costs of Court.
Therefore, the balance of 50% of the judgment amount of $US100,375.00 should be paid on or before December 15, 2022.
He said the failure of the Unity Party to make these payments in keeping with their request leaves the court with no other alternative but to proceed with the ex*****on for the respondent to satisfy the said judgment.
Judge Peabody added, as a result of the failure of Unity Party to the ruling of Judge Sammy, the petitioner filed a bill of Information on May 3, 2023, informing the court that the respondent has failed, and neglected to pay the 50% of the judgment amount as mandated by Judge Nancy Finda B. Sammy. And it is from that Bill of Information the ruling was made on May 19, 2023, mandating the respondent to pay the judgment amount on June 10, 2023 failure all of the executives of the respondent shall be held in contempt.
However, he said, since the judgment holding respondent liable was made on November 23, 2021, up to and including the filling of the Bill of Information by the petitioner on May 3, 2023, there is no showing that respondent Unity Party has made any effort to comply with the judgment made.
He indicated that based on that background the court ruled on May 16, 2023, mandating and ordering the respondent to pay the full judgment amount on June 10, 2023, or the respondents could be held in contempt for such failure.
Judge Peabody noted that the court further says that the ruling made on May 16, 2023, is still in effect because the Unity Party has defaulted on its stipulation submitted before the Court on several occasions. ....................................30................................
Criminal Court 'A' at the Temple of Justice is expected tomorrow, July 4, 2023, to hear two motions (Motion for Discovery and Motion to admit to Bail), filed by lawyers representing Justice Gloria Musu Scott and three members of her family.
Hearing for Discovery Motion is at 10:00AM while hearing for Bail Motion is at 11:00AM.
The Motion for Discovery seeks to allow Justice Scott's lawyers gain access to, and review or examine all the pieces of evidence or reliance on which the charges and indictment were drawn. It also seeks to allow the defense lawyers access to the minutes of the grand jury's meetings, deliberations and conclusions upon which the indictment was drawn while the Motion to admit seeks to convince the court to grant the accused/defendants bail while the trial goes on.
Defense lawyers are taking advantage of the constitutional doctrine that every accused person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. They are also basing their argument on the statutory provision of the law that allows the court/judge to grant bail in a capital charge/offense where presumption is not evidence and proof is not great.

CPP / ANC trashes recent resingation letter from auxilary members , accuses MDR and Unity Party
CPP RESPONDS TO PYJ
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monrovia, Liberia. Monday, May 29 2023: The Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) condemns the foul trash spewed by the unrepentant murderer Prince Yormie Johnson of the Movement for Democratic Reconstruction (MDR), which holds the Vice Standard Bearer position of the opposition Unity Party (UP), during his so-called church service on Sunday, May 28, 2023.
The murderous warlord defamed the purpose of worship and defiled the name of the Christian church screaming hate-filled messages and lies against the Standard Bearer of the CPP, Mr. Alexander B. Cummings, the recently-named charismatic Vice Standard Bearer, Cllr. Charlyne Brumskine, and the Chairman Emeritus of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Atty. Orishall Gould. The false prophet and cold-blooded murderer of hundreds of Liberians, including popular Liberian musician Tecumseh Roberts, used the pulpit of the church to hurl ridiculous, unfounded, hate-filled and threatening rants, which are not just lies but also reminders of his killer instincts and disregard for human life, truth, respect and decency as the notorious and murderous leader of the Independent National Patriotic Front of Liberia (INPFL).
It is obvious that this brigand now views the CPP as the biggest threat to his murderous quest for the Liberian presidency, having failed multiple times to shoot his way into occupying our nation’s highest office. Now because Prince Johnson believes his hand picked Vice Presidential candidate could become president at any time if the UP ticket is successful, he is using every dirty and wicked tactic to halt the momentum and popular advance of the CPP Ticket. The blood-stained killer of Liberians of all tribes, including sons and daughters of Nimba, sees himself closer to the Liberian presidency this time, with only the vaunted and momentum-building CPP in his way. Hence, his vitriolic and slanderous rants against the opposition CPP must be seen in terms of the danger it poses to our beloved country if this killer is anywhere near the Liberian presidency. This will not be accepted. Baboon should know the tree to rub itself against!
We therefore call on Ambassador Joseph Boakai to condemn this provocation and vile attack against the CPP by his political partner and reign in his new bedfellows, or the CPP will. This is not an empty threat. As the emerging leader of the opposition, the CPP looks to work with the opposition community to make failed George Weah a one-term president. While this is our focus, we will not fail to deal decisively and aggressively with pretentious hustlers and known traders of our democratic quest for real change in our country. Amb. Boakai can choose to “dance with the devil” but the CPP will not!
We also call on the Liberian Council of Churches, the Liberian Pastoral Network, and leaders of the Christian faith in Liberia to condemn the blasphemous use of the pulpit and name of the Christian Church by politicians and false prophets to slander and defame political opponents. This abuse of religion must stop now. The continued silence of leaders of the church can only aid and abet these false prophets and abusers of the faith.
Finally, it is unfortunate that the likes of notorious Prince Y. Johnson who should have answered for egregious war crimes, multiple murders, and crimes against humanity and the people of Liberia, including sons and daughters of Nimba, still has a voice in our political space. He fears the CPP because he knows we are serious in our promise made to the victims, survivors, and family members of the over 250,000 Liberians who lost their lives in our civil war, that under the CPP leadership, all warlords including Pay-to-Play self-styled General Prince Y. Johnson, will definitely answer for war crimes against the people of Liberia. If the Legislature fails to pass the bill, the CPP Standard Bearer when elected will appoint, by Executive Order, a Special Prosecutor on War Crimes to end this long-standing impunity.

DEFENDANTS IN THE 100 MILLION DRUGS CASE ACQUITTED
Defendants in the US$100 million co***ne case have been acquitted of all charges, including money laundering, illegal possession and importation of controlled drugs, and criminal conspiracy, by Criminal Court “C” at the Temple of Justice.
Among those set free by the court on May 18, 2023, were Malam Conte, Adulai Djibri Djalo, Makki Admeh Issam, Oliver A. Zayzay, and others.
Judge Blamo A. Dixon has also ordered the Liberian Government to return the US$200,000 confiscated during the crackdown.
The October 1, 2022 arrest, which was the largest illicit drug bust across West Africa, was made possible with the assistance of the United States security agency.
The verdict has divided Liberians, with many acknowledging that the country still has a long way to go in the fight against drugs and substance abuse, which continues to endanger the population. As a result, the legislature has been under pressure to ensure that the crime is non-bailable.
