MINISTER OF COMMERCE FILES CRIMINAL LAWSUIT AGAINST VOICE OF LIBERIA CEO FOR COERCION, HARASSMENT, AND BLACKMAIL

Date:

MONROVIA – The Minister of Commerce, Mawine G. Diggs, has initiated legal action against Sekou V. Sheriff Jr., the CEO of Voice of Liberia. The lawsuit accuses Sheriff Jr. of engaging in criminal coercion, harassment, and blackmail. As a result, a writ of arrest has been issued against the prominent media figure.

The allegations leveled against Sheriff Jr., a renowned personality in Liberia’s media landscape, have sent shockwaves throughout the nation. The Minister of Commerce, who is responsible for regulating trade and industry in the country, has taken the significant step of pursuing legal recourse against the CEO.

According to Documents, the lawsuit claims that Sheriff Jr. has resorted to illicit means in an attempt to coerce and intimidate the Minister of Commerce. It is alleged that the accused engaged in a persistent and malicious campaign of harassment and attempted blackmail against Diggs, posing a substantial threat to her personal and professional well-being.

The exact specifics of the accusations remain undisclosed at this time, as the legal proceedings are ongoing. However, sources suggest that evidence supporting the allegations has been presented to the appropriate authorities, paving the way for the issuance of a writ of arrest against Sheriff Jr.

The Voice of Liberia, a widely listened to media institution known for its commitment to free speech now finds itself embroiled in a high-profile legal battle. The organization, which has played a crucial role in Liberia’s media landscape, has yet to release an official statement concerning the allegations.

In response to these developments, the public has expressed a range of reactions. Some individuals have expressed their disbelief, as Sheriff Jr. has long been considered a fearless character within the media industry. Others have voiced their support for Minister Diggs, advocating for a thorough investigation into the allegations.

As this legal saga unfolds, it remains uncertain how the case will progress and what the consequences could be for both the Minister of Commerce and the CEO of Voice of Liberia. The judiciary is anticipated to conduct a fair and impartial examination of the evidence presented by both sides to arrive at a just resolution.

The nation will undoubtedly be closely monitoring the proceedings, as the outcome of this case could have far-reaching implications for the media landscape and the fight against coercion, harassment, and blackmail in Liberia
