The Ministry of Justice through its prosecuting Attorney Cllr. Wesseh A. Wesseh has sent a communication to the Liberian Senate requesting that body to temporarily relief Nargborlor Sengbeh of his post to enable him face criminal prosecution.
Sengbeh who is the Senate’s secretary was indicted as a result of the Liberia Anti- Corruption Commission for allegations of economic sabotage, theft of property, criminal, conspiracy and criminal facilitation.
He is expected to face trial at Criminal Court ‘C’ on Tuesday August 17, as a criminal defendant in the case; the Republic of Liberia plaintiff versus J. Nargborlor F. Sengbeh defendant.
However, the Ministry of Justice said if Sengbeh is not temporarily discharged of his post and allowed to face trial, it will cast a dark cloud over Liberia’s justice system.
The communication further stated that a criminal prosecution of the Senate Secretary is not squarely intended to convict him but to ensure that justice prevails.
The ministry is meanwhile reminding the upper house of its June 28 communication requesting that august body to relief Nargborlor Sengbeh, an alleged criminal defendant to face charges at criminal court C.
