Former Police Chief Secures U.S.$400,000 Bond

 

Former Inspector General of the Liberia National Police, Beatrice Munah Sieh-Brown, has finally secured a US$400,000.00 criminal appearance bond following her indictment recently by the grand jury for Montserrado County along with four others.The ex- police chief, along with her former deputy, H. Mannah Dunn; the proprietor of the Ultimate Investment and Holding Company, Prince O.A Akinremi; Kaymah Zeon and Nebo Garlo, both auditors at the Ministry of Finance, were indicted for multiple crimes, including economic sabotage, theft of property, criminal facilitation and criminal conspiracy.

Madam Sieh-Brown and the others were accused by the General Auditing Commission (GAC) and the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) for stealing US$199,800.00 intended for the purchase of uniform for the Emergency Response Unit (ERU). Since her indictment and subsequent issuance of an arrest order recently by Criminal Court "C" at the Temple of Justice, the former police boss has reportedly been on the run. Madam Sieh-Brown has however denied ever escaping justice as speculated.

She told the court that she had gone to Grand Kru County to attend a convention when the order was issued by the court. The former police chief was accused by the LACC in 2008 and recommended, along with other government officials to the Ministry of Justice for indictment and subsequent prosecution. But, not until recently (2012) nearly five years later that the former police boss was formally indicted after the Ministry of Justice had said there were not enough evidence to indict or prosecute the defendants.

Zimbabwe: Man Commits Suicide Over Watermelons


An 84-year-old man here committed suicide at his Dendele homestead following the continued theft of watermelons from his field.Watermelons thrive in the arid district and have a ready market along the Harare -Beitbridge Road. Mukibelo Salimon Mlilo of headman Mazibeli's area is understood to have taken his own life between 4 and 5pm on Tuesday.It is reported that on the fateful day, the now deceased had spent the whole day tending the field with his 77-year old wife.

Police investigations reveal that he spent the day complaining to his wife about the continued theft of watermelons in his field. Later that day he went home early and left the wife to continue with the weeding. He hanged himself with a wire on a tree behind his bedroom hut. Police officer commanding Beitbridge district Chief Superintendent Lawrence Chinhengo said Mlilo's wife found her husband's body dangling from the tree.

"She then made a report to the police who then conveyed the body to Beitbridge District Hospital mortuary for post-mortem. "As police we want to urge people to always engage the services of a counsellor or a third party when they are faced with problem rather than taking their own lives. Some of these incidents are preventable and it is worrying that we continue to lose more lives through suicide," he said.

‘Project Runway’ star Korto Momolu is Done With Fashion Week


Korto Momolu came onto the fashion scene as a breakout star of Project Runway’s Season 5. While the Liberian-born designer did not win, she ended the season as the first runner up, and earned a runway show during New York City’s Fashion Week. Since those heady days, Momolu has hit more career milestones such as designing for the female president of Liberia. Yet at this point in her life, the married mother of a young daughter is ready to simplify her career approach.

During February’s New York 2012 Fall Fashion Week, Momolu presented her “Monaco” collection in the hip basement of the Cellar Bar lounge at the Byrant Park hotel, which is close to where Fashion Week used to be traditionally held. Despite this close proximity to a former fashion nexus, Momolu told theGrio that after Fashion Week in September — the most important of the two held annually — the designer plans to remove herself from the scene.

Judge Sends Man On Date With Wife


A US judge has ordered a man accused of scuffling with his wife to take her out for a date. Jospeh Bray, 47, was told to buy wife Sonja, 39, flowers and then take her out bowling and for a romantic meal, reports the Sun Sentinel. Judge John Hurley also ordered the couple, of Plantation, Florida, to visit a marriage guidance counsellor. Bray was charged with domestic violence after he and his wife got embroiled in a spat after he failed to wish her a happy birthday.

Mrs Bray claimed that her husband shoved her against a sofa and grabbed her neck. But the judge handed down his ruling after deeming the offence "very, very minor". However, he said Bray would face jail if he did not follow his sentence to the letter. "He's going to stop by somewhere and he's going to get some flowers," said Judge Hurley.

"And then he's going to go home, pick up his wife, get dressed, take her to Red Lobster. And then after they have Red Lobster, they're going to go bowling."

President Sirleaf Launches Children's Law

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf today officially launched the Children's Law of Liberia to protect children and their right to participate meaningfully in their development. "When we see you walking around, talking to each other, enjoying the day, we can just be so happy and say, this particular act to protect you, is one that has been long in the making," the president, who was the 2011 Noble Peace Laureate, told thousands of children at the Annual Children's Festival in Monrovia.The law is one of the most comprehensive pieces of children's rights legislation in the continent and is largely based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child, ratified by Liberia in 1993 and 1992 respectively.

Barbecuing to boost Liberia's economy


The chaos of Liberia's civil war may not have been the ideal time to open a fast-food restaurant but this did not deter Liberian businessman Sam Mitchell. The doors to Sam's Barbeque opened in the 1990s after Mr Mitchell decided that he needed to play a part in efforts to bring the country back to order after six years of war. The conflict left around 250,000 dead and many thousands more fled. Liberia was left in financial ruin and overrun with weapons. In the aftermath, many only saw despair but Mr Mitchell saw the need for all Liberians to get involved in efforts to resuscitate a stagnant economy.  Full Story...
