FAMILY OF FORMER CHIEF JUSTICE EXPRESSES CONCERN OVER HANDLING OF INTRUDER CASE

Date:

MONROVIA, LIBERIA – The family of former Chief Justice Gloria Musu Scott has expressed shock over the actions of police investigators in charging intruders arrested at her residence without any contact with or reference to the family.

Several individuals were arrested on February 15, 2024, at Justice Scott’s Virginia home after community residents alerted the police, marking the fourth such intrusion. The suspects were taken into custody, investigated, and charged without involving the property owner or any family member.

The family was dismayed that the investigators charged the suspects with burglary and attached a $4,000 cost for items stolen or property damage without involving them. The charge sheet does not mention contact with the owner of the property or the complainant interviewed by the police.

The family described this as strange and worrisome, suggesting it could be a deliberate attempt to complicate the case and let the suspects go free without a thorough investigation. Nathaniel Toe, the family spokesman, expressed concern over how investigators arrived at the $4,000 cost without consulting the family.

Toe questioned how the police intend to prosecute the suspects if the property owner is not contacted to provide information on the stolen items or property damage. He also highlighted that the suspects were arrested with keys used to open the gates and doors, raising concerns similar to the late Charloe murder case.

The family’s concerns come after investigators ruled out the possibility of intrusion into the former Chief Justice’s residence during the Charloe murder trial. Defense lawyers argued that the murder was committed by an intruder, contrary to police conclusions.
