Mediaman Takes Colleagues To Court
By Edwin G. Wandah
Six Liberian journalists have been taken to the Monrovia City Court for criminal cohesion. The journalists, representing several media institutions in the country, were seen at the grounds of the Temple of Justice when they were already charged for the crime, ‘Criminal Cohesion’.
The journalists in spotlight are TeteGebro of L.I.B-24, Boimah J.V. Boimah of the New Democrat Newspaper, and Octavin Williams, Publisher of the Nation Times Newspaper; others caught in the web were Charles Yates, Rufus Paul, Emmanuel Dahn, including a Lebanese man Sam Fawaz.
According to court records before this paper, the six journalists, including Fawaz were sued by Henry Costa of the Voice FM Radio and Musa Sackor for allegedly conspiring against Messrs Costa and Sackor.
The writ of summon issued against the journalists further states that both Costa and Sackor were linked to the deportation and murder of co-defendant Sam Fawaz, which the act of the journalists and Fawaz exposed the complainants to public hatred and ridicule as well as impaired their business reputation.
Meanwhile, the six journalists, TeteGebro of L.I.B-24, Boimah J.V. Boimah of the New Democrat Newspaper, and Octavin Williams, Publisher of the Nation Times Newspaper and others were entrusted to Cllr. TiawonGongloe and WuefueSayee with order to return with them next Tuesday for court’s hearing.
