At long last Lebanese businessman Bassam Jawhary has been booted out of the estate of the late Milad Hage after almost six years of legal battle over the property between the late Milad Hage’s wife, Oumou Sirleaf Hage, and Bassam Jawhary.
Documents including purported letters testamentary which were in possession of Mr. Jawhary placing as Executor of the late Milad R. Hage’s estate were revoked by the Monthly and Probate Court of Montserado County on March 18, 2015.
A communication addressed to Mr. Jawhary on March 18, 2015 under the signature of the clerk of the Court, Edwin S. Boimah, by directive of the assigned Judge, Her Honor Eva Mappy Morgan, he was informed the court’s communication of March 2, 2015 suspending his letters testamentary to administer the estate of the late Milad R. Hage is modified to the effect that said letters testamentary is revoked with immediate effect.
The court ordered Mr. Jawhary to submit a comprehensive inventory of the estate to the court as stated in the December 26, 2015 mandate as well as a detailed statement pertaining to the loan facility at Eco-Bank with the estate.
The court also reminded Mr. Jawhary who is said to be on the run that he is under investigation for allegation of mal practices alleged to have been committed by him while administering the affairs of the estate as Executor.
The Monthly and Probate Court has accordingly communicated with tenants of the late Milad Hage’s estate informing them of this latest judgment of the court under the gavel of Her Honor Eva Mappy Morgan, Chief Judge of the Commercial Court of Liberia who is mandated by the Supreme Court to preside over the matter for the expeditious determination of the late Milad R. Hage’s estate case which has been at the Probate Court at the Temple of Justice since 2010 without determination.
The court informed them that the Curator of the court, Stephen Clarke, has been duly appointed by the court to work in conjunction with the late Milad R. Hage’s wife, Oumou Sirleaf Hage to with immediate effect take over the estate of the late Mitad R. Hage excluding the properties of Oumou S. Hage and children along with Nowah Hage who is represented by her mother.
The Court further ordered that any and all decisions concerning the properties must meet the approval of the court, The court mandated the tenants to make all rental payments of the Hage’s estate in accounts #OO1LD 40389468601 and # 001USD 40389468602 at the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI) and furnish the Chamber of the assigned Judge, Her Honor Eva Mappy Morgan, with copies of the bank payment slips in consultation with the Monthly and Probate Court for Montserrado County. The tenants were warned that their failure to adhere to the court’s order will leave the court with no alternative but to proceed against them accordingly.
