POLICE ARREST CHRISTIAN WEAH, ALLEGED FRAUDSTER IN FAKE OIL BLOCK-9 DEAL

Date:

MONROVIA, LIBERIA – In a recent development, the police have successfully apprehended Christian Weah, a suspected fraudster from Liberia who had managed to evade arrest for an extended period.

Shocking allegations have come to light, connecting Christian Weah, a person of influence in Liberia, to a complex web of fraudulent activities. Weah is believed to have been posing as the brother of former President George Weah, exploiting this false identity to deceive people globally, as detailed in a police report.

According to law enforcement records, Chris Weah allegedly employed forged documents, obtained in Liberia, to convince an American woman to transfer a substantial sum of over US$4 million into his account in Liberia. Authorities have suggested that he used his connections within the government to avoid arrest, even influencing the Liberia Immigration Service and a Criminal Court Judge in hindering his capture and prosecution.

Police sources indicate that Weah had been deceiving Mrs. Wood, an American citizen and the President of Wasil Holding Incorporated, for a significant period. The company, supposedly originating from Kiev, Ukraine, bears the signature of an individual named Herman Huluchenko, claiming to be the Energy Minister of Ukraine. These documents were allegedly notarized in Texas, USA, bearing the signature of Zachary J. Fowler, a notary officer.

Christian Weah was arrested today by the Liberian Police Major Fraud Division for allegedly defrauding an American individual out of millions of dollars. The fraudulent scheme involved the fraudulent sale of an oil block to the victim, with Weah presenting counterfeit documents suggesting that he had secured a license from the Liberian Government to operate oil block LB-9. According to the police reports, Weah exploited these forged documents to convince the American woman to transfer over US$4 million. Authorities have reasons to believe that Weah utilized his government connections to evade apprehension successfully. Moreover, it is alleged that he exerted influence over the Liberia Immigration Service and a Criminal Court Judge to obstruct his prosecution.
