Driver denies absconding with US$70k from CPP rally

By Ethel A Tweh

Simoen Davis, the driver of Liberty Party Secretary General Martin Kollah, accused of absconding with US$70,000 meant for the recent “We Taya Suffering” rally has denied the allegation.

Mr. Davis challenged Mr. Kollah or anyone claiming that he stole the money to present facts, adding that if anyone thinks he stole money, they should take him to court.

Speaking to Spoon Talk, a live online platform here, Simoen said he has no idea of the missing money in question. “No, I don’t have idea about any money. I was in the sick bush and recently saw that my name was all on Facebook that I ran away with money. Some people said 50K, 100K, 70K, but I don’t have any idea”, Davis denied.

He was accused by his boss Martin Kollah on the eve of the rally for allegedly making away with the amount.

But Simoen noted that rally architect Ambassador Lewis Brown and Martin Kollah know about the 70K because the money was given to them by the leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC) Mr. Alexander B. Cummings.

“The last money I held from Martin was US$15 thousand and I took it to him and his former driver was there. Martin thinks I’m going to die; I will not die. When I’m coming, it will not be in hiding, everyone will know that I’m coming. The police will be aware because my life is at risk.”

According to him, some people allegedly went to his woman in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County and threatened his family there, saying he will not allow anyone to spoil his character.

Simoen revealed that he drove for former Foreign Minister Gbehzongar Findley before and he (Gbehzongar) had US$240 thousand in his car for campaign purposes, adding “If I’m a rogue, I would have stolen that money.”

He said he is willing to speak to the Police about the missing money and is prepared to will make himself accessible, explaining that he was the one who contacted Spoon Radio. He said the law is the law, and he is willing to face justice. Editing by Jonathan Browne
