Court auctions CDC headquarters

The former ruling party CDC has lost all rights to the property that hosted its party headquarters just less than two months after it handed power over.

Monrovia, Liberia, 7 March 2024: The Civil Law Court in Monrovia has ordered the property hosting the former ruling Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) headquarters to be seized and sold to raise a targeted amount of US$54,170.00 and L$13,250.00.

The court has further ordered that if its officers cannot find any land, goods, or chattel of the CDC, they are commanded to arrest the party’s corporate officers and administrators, as the case may be.

The court has mandated that the defendant be brought before it to be dealt with according to law unless they pay the sum of money or show the property to the court officers to be sold to raise the judgment amount.

The order came after the court stripped CDC of ownership of the property which it used as its party headquarters throughout its six-year rule.

The case before the court was filed by Ebrima Varney Dempster for the Intestate Estate of Martha Stubblefied Bernard against the CDC and its administrators, as well as the intestate Estate of the late Willians Thomas Bernard, represented by its Executory Administrator.

Archibald F. Bernard, Nancy Freddy Bernard Froomnan, Murary Bernard, Vivian Bernard, Willa Bernard, Leona P. Bernard, and Archibald F. Bernard.

The court said that upon receiving money from the sale or otherwise the Judgment Amount, the Sheriff is commanded to pay the necessary sum to satisfy the Judgment to the plaintiff/appellant herein named.

The double writs from the Civil Law Court have evicted the former ruling party from its headquarters in Congo Town following a recent Supreme Court opinion against the CDC.

This eviction of the CDC is a clear embarrassment for a party just from power less than two months ago. However, this development could also raise questions about its relations with Archibald F. Bernard, one of the family members in the property case who enjoyed close ties with the CDC during its rule.
