LIBERIA: PYJ wants ALL MYSTERIOUS DEATHS INVESTIGATED
Senator Prince Y. Johnson is recommending to the incoming Unity Party(UP) Administration to establish the Commission of Inquiry aimed at investigating some mysterious death cases during the Weah-Taylor regime.
The Nimba County Senator has been very bitter at President George Manneh prior, during and since the conduct of the October 10, 2023 presidential and legislative elections and subsequently the November 14, 2023 presidential runoff election across the country.
The political bitterness between the outgoing Liberian leader and Senator Johnson ensued at the time the lawmaker demanded US$7.5 million the Coalition for Democratic Change owed his county, adding that the money was given by concession companies operating in the area.
As a result of the controversies surrounding the said fund, Senator Johnson ended his political marriage with President Weah and his CDC and later pledged his support for the election of Joseph Nyuma Boakai, standard bearer of the opposition Unity Party ahead of the 2023 elections.
The lawmaker lobbied for his political son, Senator Jeremiah Koung to run alongside former VP Boakai and demonstrated his political influence by delivering Nimba, one of the key factors that led to the defeat of incumbent Weah by Boakai in the November 14, 2023 presidential runoff election in Liberia.
Despite the defeat of the outgoing president, Senator Johnson remains resolute in demanding justice for those he believed were mysteriously murdered under the CDC regime, stressing the need for President Weah to account for how the country’s resources have been used under his reign.
Speaking to scores of citizens over the weekend in Monrovia, Senator Prince Johnson disclosed that he is proposing the setting up of a special body known as the Commission on Inquiry by the Boakai-Koung Administration upon taking over in early 2024.
“Mr. Weah, there will be an institution or the Commission of Inquiry, I recommend the establishment of the Commission of Inquiry to investigate the mysterious deaths of our loving auditors,” he said.
According to him, the Commission when established will not only look into the deaths of those Liberians but it will also investigate the missing million during the Weah-Taylor government.
“We are told from intelligence that you got all of those millions of US in your (Weah’s) home and so I recommend a search warrant to check your home where the security is minding 24yrs,” the lawmaker intoned.
He is demanding a full scale investigation in the deaths of the late Charloe Musu – niece of former Chief Justice Gloria Musu Scott, the officer of the Executive Protection Service who reportedly shot himself in the head three times, the three auditors and former Public Works Minister, Mabutu Vlah Nyepan among others.
Senator Johnson maintained that he will ensure President Weah, his confidants – Finance Minister Samuel Tweah, Margibi County Senator-elect and former Minister of State, Nathaniel McGill and River Cess County Senator-elect and former Managing Director of the National Port Authority, Bill Twehway among several others.
