REPRESENTATIVE YEKEH KOLUBAH DENOUNCES POLICE INACTION, THREATENS DIPLOMATIC INTERVENTION

Date:

MONROVIA – Representative Yekeh Y. Kolubah, representing Electoral District #10, Montserrado County, has voiced frustration over the apparent inaction of the Liberia National Police (LNP) regarding a complaint he filed.

He asserts that a month ago, he sent a communication to the LNP concerning a case involving J-mart, a matter related to coupons given to lawmakers from the executive branch. Despite his efforts, Kolubah claims that the LNP has neither acknowledged nor acted upon his communication, nor have they invited Jmart’s administration for questioning. Expressing disappointment, Kolubah questions the ethics of the LNP, declaring his refusal to honor any future communications from the institution if he is invited.

In a letter addressed to Police Inspector General Gregory Coleman, dated June 5, 2024, Kolubah expressed his concerns regarding the lack of response to his complaint. He reminded the Inspector General of his duty to address citizens’ grievances promptly and with due diligence. Kolubah emphasized that the failure to acknowledge his complaint not only violates his rights as a citizen but also undermines his role as a stakeholder in the country. As a lawmaker, Kolubah asserts his decision to withhold cooperation with the LNP until they take appropriate action in response to his complaint. He warns that his trust and confidence in the institution remain compromised until they demonstrate accountability and adherence to ethical standards.

Furthermore, Kolubah announced his intention to escalate the matter by sending a communication to international partners, including the US Embassy, EU, and the UN. He alleges bribery within the House of Representatives, specifically implicating Minister of Commerce Amin Modad. Kolubah’s decision to involve international partners underscores his determination to seek justice and transparency, even if it means resorting to diplomatic channels.

Representative Yekeh Y. Kolubah’s outspoken stance against perceived police inaction and government corruption highlights the challenges facing Liberia’s law enforcement and governance. His actions underscore the importance of accountability and transparency in maintaining public trust and upholding democratic principles.

It can be recalled on March 25, 2024, Rep. Kolubah sent a communication to Police Inspector General Gregory Coleman, stating, “I present you compliments and wish to file a complaint against J-mart, which has refused to allow me to take delivery of my items from its showroom.”

Mr. Inspector General, I possess an official Coupon from J-mart, “solely applicable against the purchase of goods available at the J-mart Randall Street Showroom,” valued at US$4,500.00 and duly signed by the administration of J-mart.

In light of the above, I kindly request your assistance in ensuring that my materials are retrieved from the J-mart Showroom or that the cash equivalent is refunded to me.

As the saga unfolds, Kolubah’s defiance serves as a reminder of the ongoing struggle for justice and integrity within Liberia’s political landscape.
