SAD DAY TO NOMINATE CORRUPT JUDGE TO SUPREME COURT BENCH – SAYS FORMER LIBERIAN DEFENSE MINISTER BROWNIE SAMUKAI

Date:

Mr. Brownie Samukai

LIBERIA – Former Liberian Defense Minister Mr. Brownie Samukai has said that it is a sad day for Liberia for an alleged ‘corrupt judge’ to be nominated as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.

Appearing on a local radio yesterday, Mr. Samukai pointed out that “I am going to meet foreign diplomats and tell them the true character of the nominated Associate Justice Yarmie Gbeisay – he is corrupt, lacks integrity and lacks the character to sit on the bench of the Supreme Court of Liberia as Associate Justice.”

Mr. Samukai indicated that elements of the law trained to interpret the law in Liberia are themselves breaching the law for reasons best only known to them.

Associate Justice Yarmie Gbeisay

Mr. Brownie Samukai reiterated his stance against the Liberian judiciary, highlighting the alleged corrupt practices he experienced during his case.

He said just what Judge Yarmie Gbeisay did during his trial by flaunting justice is the very thing he allegedly did during his confirmation hearing at the Senate as he faced senators following his nomination as Associate Justice-designate to the bench of the Supreme Court.

According to former Defense Minister Samukai, Judge Gbeisay while appearing before the Senate deliberately lied that he and his co-defendants did not produce a defense against the charges brought against them.

Judge Gbeisay presided over a case in which Samukai was held for allegedly stealing funds belonging to soldiers of the Armed Forces of Liberia.
