A lady identified as Albertha Gbilee has filed a law suit at the Monrovia Magisterial Court against several Liberian journalists.
The journalists who have been charged with criminal cohesion and harassment have been identified as: Charles Yates, Boima J. V. Bioma, Rufus Paul, Emmanuel Dahn and Octavin Williams.
In the writ of summons to the five journalists, Madam Gbilee alleged that during the period of August, 2014, and this month, the defendants “purposely did connive and conspire accusing the said private prosecutrix of human trafficking and that she was bribed to deport her son, which said private prosecutrix to hatred, ridicule as well as impair her credit and business repute.”
She alleged that defendants in furtherance to their criminal and unlawful attitude continue to appear over radio stations with the intent to harass private prosecutrix terming her to be wicked contrary to the law of sections 14.27 & 14.28 of the new Penal Law of Liberia.
Meanwhile, the journalists have been ordered to appear in court today to answer to criminal charges brought against them, as the alleged act of the defendants being unlawful, wicked, and intentional is in violation of the laws.
