CSO COUNCIL DEPLORES GRUESOME MURDER OF EX-JUSTICE’S DAUGHTER – CALLS FOR SPEEDY INVESTIGATION

Date:

MONROVIA – The National Civil Society Council of Liberia (NCSCL) has deplored the gruesome murder of one of the daughters of former Chief Justice and former Senator of Maryland County, Cllr. Gloria Musu Scott in an armed robbery attack.

Cllr. Scott’s daughter was stabbed to death by the armed gangs on the night of Wednesday, February 22, 2023, at about 10 pm at their home in Virginia in Brewerville City, outside Monrovia. Other siblings of the deceased were also tortured.

It is gathered that prior to the attack, Cllr. Scott, who is also a former Minister of Justice and former Chairperson of the National Elections Commission (NEC), had alerted police and the Ministry of Justice that her life was in danger, reporting some unknown persons had been tailing her, but nothing was done to protect the lives of the family.

NCSCL, which is the apex body of all civil society organizations in the country, in a statement, called on the Liberia National Police (LNP) to ensure the expeditious arrest and prosecution of all persons linked to the callous murder and brutalization of the children of the former Chief Justice and Senator.

The CSO Council condemned the barbaric attack at the home of the former Chief Justice, stressing that the action of the attackers was premeditated and masterminded by some nefarious elements of darkness with the purpose of achieving a deadly end.

“The CSO Council calls on Director-general Patrick Suddue of the Liberia National Police not to allow this case to linger on by the employment of foot-dragging tactics and strategies, but ensure that the perpetrators and their accomplices are apprehended and brought to book. In this civilized world, there should be no room to harbor criminals and deadly masquerades hiding under the cover of darkness to inflict harm and deprive peaceful people of their right to life, liberties, and freedoms,” said the statement crafted under the signature of the Council’s Chairperson, Madam Loretta Alethea Pope-Kai.

“This kind of skewed and uncouth maneuvering only has the proclivity to disintegrate society into the world of the wild, where might mean right and where the rich and the strong can manipulate their will against the poor and the weak, especially when left unchecked. We stand against travesty and we deplore acts of barbarism!” added the Council.
