For Attack On Justice Scott’s Home: ‘Persons of Interest’ Face Police Probe

by newsmanager

MONROVIA: Several “persons of interest’ are currently undergoing probe by the Liberia National Police (LNP), in connection to the recent series of attacks against the Brewerville residence of former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Liberia, Cllr. Gloria Musu-Scott, resulting into the gruesome killing of her daughter, Charloe Musu.

Addressing a news conference on Monday, February 27, 2023, H. Moses Carter, Spokesman of the Liberia National Police (LNP), who did not name those who are undergoing LNP investigation disclosed that the Liberian Government, through the Justice Ministry, “takes very seriously the investigation on the former Chief Justice as a national interest.”

The Liberia National Police (LNP) has also announced a five-thousand-United States Dollar reward, for anyone with useful information that will lead to the arrest of the alleged attackers on the home of former Chief Justice Gloria Musu Scott.

He pointed out that such information will be treated with the highest degree of confidentiality.
He, at the same time, called on “individuals politicizing the recent attack to desist,” while calling on the public to cooperate with the police to ensure that a thorough investigation is concluded.
According to the state-owned Liberia Broadcasting System (LBS), the man allegedly accused of masterminding the attack on the residence of the former Chief Justice has denied his involvement.
According to LBS, addressing a news conference on Monday, February 27, 2023, Varlee Telleh, an agent of the Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) said: “The former Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Chairman, Cllr. Jerome Verdier, is using my past civil war affiliation with the then ULIMO rebel group, to falsely link me to the incident.”
Mr. Telleh said:” Though I live in the Brewerville, Community where I affiliated with a mosque, I have never met nor visited the home of Cllr. Scott,” LBS quoted him as saying.
His reaction comes at a time when Cllr. Verdier recently informed a local radio talk show that Monrovia City Mayor, Jefferson Koijee, has smuggled him out of the Country, through Nimba County, to escape justice.
Mr. Telleh also cited how he is allegedly being set up and linked to the incident by Cllr. Verdier, because of business fallout with one Sheik Sackor who currently resides abroad.
Last year, Cllr. Verdier also accused Mayor Koijee of being a member of former President Charles Taylor’s Anti-Terrorist Unit (ATU).
But, such alleged fabrication against Mayor Koijee has since been countered by a former TRC Commissioner, Massa Washington, as untrue and baseless, the LBS report added.
In another development, the LNP has given a seventy-two hour ultimatum to Cllr. Jerome Verdier to retract allegations made against Police Inspector General, Patrick Sudue.
Cllr. Verdier, in a statement on Spoon Talk, accused Police Inspector General, Col. Patrick Sudue, of being involved in the killing of the former senior employee of the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL), Matthew Innis.
The former Senior CBL Employee, according to police reports, died in 2019 from a ‘hit and run’ accident.

LNP Spokesman, Moses Carter said:” Cllr. Verdier risks a civil action from the LNP if he fails to comply.”
He added that such action by the police is meant to safeguard the sanctity of the police and the reputation of its Inspector General.
