PAYNESVILLE: A Liberian business man and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Logan & Logan Group based in Paynesville City outside Monrovia has complained, Judge Roosevelt Z. Willie, the Resident Circuit Court Judge of the First Judicial Circuit Court, Criminal Court “A” for Montserrado County.
According to a letter of complaint, addressed to Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Liberia , Francis S. Korkpor, dated November 19, 2020, Mr. Chapman Logan, CEO of the Logan & Logan Group said, I wish to “bring to your attention the unethical behavior of His Honor, Judge Roosevelt Z. Willie, Resident Circuit Judge of the First Circuit Court, Criminal Court “A” for Montserrado County among other things on May 6, 2020 directed the Assistant Clerk of Criminal Court “A” Mr. Enoch W. Brooks to issue a WRIT OF SUBPOENA DECES TECUM, URGENT!.”
Champman Logan further informed the Chief Justice through his communication that Judge Willie is also seeking the appearance of the Management of Lone Star GSM Company to appear before Criminal Court “A” on the 7th day of May A.D. 2020 at the precise hour of 12:00 P.M.
He added that the Writ from Judge Willie further requested the management of Lone Star GSM Company to “provide detail call log and Sim Card Registration, Photos, Address, Cell ID, IMEI TEXT Messages and Location of the Subscribers of Cell Nos. 0886-511308 and 0886-510206 from January 1, 2020 to present.
“Cell No. 0886510206 belongs to I, Chapman Logan, CEO of the Logan & Logan Group,” he disclosed.
Mr. Logan clarifies that at no time he ever had matter pending before Criminal Court “A” or being under investigation by said Court for the period stated in the WRIT OF SUBPOENA DECES TECUM, URGENT!. He stressed that the Writ was issued void of his knowledge and consent while expressing frustration over Judge Willie’s action instructing one Hans Arsmstrong to wrongly publish in local dailies said instrument.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Logan & Logan Group based in Paynesville City outside Monrovia wants the Chief Justice, Francis S. Korkpor to be aware of what he called ‘unethical behavior of Judge Willie’ who, according to him, has brought untold embarrassment not only to him (Chapman Logan) but his business partners and clients. The Writ of Subpoena DecesTecum issued by Judge Willie, a copy of which is in the possession of this paper, mandates the Management of LONESTAR GSM Company to appear before court on 7th Day of May A.D. 2020 at the hour of 12:00.
“You are further commanded to make your official returns to the office of the Clerk of this Court with your signature endorsed on the back of the original stating your manner of service and to inform the respondent that upon their failure to adhere to this SUBPOENA DECES TECUM,” the Writ mentioned.
However, all effort made by this paper to get Judge Roosevelt Z. Willie, the Resident Circuit Court Judge of the First Judicial Circuit Court, Criminal Court “A” for Montserrado County proved futile up to press time.
