MONROVIA, LIBERIA – State prosecutors have taken exception and announced an appeal to the Supreme Court, in the Economic Sabotage Case involving the Government of Liberia and four ex-Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) officials.
In his charge Tuesday, August 25, 2020, Criminal Court ‘C’ Judge, Yamie Gbesay, ruled in favor of the four Ex-CBL officials and set them free for what he termed as insufficient evidence from the Government.
But Government lawyers have taken advantage of the law, by announcing an appeal to the highest court (the Supreme Court) to overturn Judge Gbesay’s August 25 ruling.
Those set free are former CBL Executive Governor, Milton Weeks, Board Members Kollie Tamba, Elsie Dossen-Badio and David Fahart.
They were indicted by the Government of Liberia for multiple crimes, ranging from theft, economic sabotage, among others.
It relates to the printing of additional Liberian dollar banknotes by the Central Bank of Liberia without due authorization from the National Legislature.
