Bong Citizens Raise Concerns On Rep. Trial

A number of Bong County Citizens and organizations, under the banner of the Association of Bong County Interest Groups (ABOG), say its attention has been drawn to the unprecedented trends Deputy House Speaker Tokpa Mulbah’s case is taking at Criminal Court “A” at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia.

In a release issued in Monrovia last weekend, ABOG made specific reference to Friday’s proceedings of the case in which it expressed fear that Deputy Speaker Mulbah will have no justice at the end of the trial.

The release quoted the  Association as alarming that Judge James Zotaa, who is presiding over the case, is bias in accepting or rejecting major objections raised by the defense counsel and Jurors against prosecution witnesses.

The group of Bong County citizens wondered why Judge Zotaa, who earlier cautioned jurors against taking bribes from either the prosecution or defense, has chosen to be bias.

Though the Association considers the case against the deputy speaker as politically motivated, it vowed to resist any attempt to thwart justice in favor of the prosecution.

However, the Association cautiously warned Judge Zotaa as a professional lawyer,   not to allow himself to be drawn into the current political ball game in Liberia.

Meanwhile, the Association says it has dispatched some of its members to Bong County to adequately inform their citizens about the current status of the case and its attending political motive.
