The Paynesville Magisterial Court in Paynesville City, Montserrado County has issued a search, arrest and detainment warrant for two residents of the county, declaring them as fugitives.
Jerry Doe and Olando Kanswen, former employees of the Adventist Development Relief Agency or ADRA-Liberia, who are residents of Monrovia, were declared fugitives by the court on July 3, 2015. The men have reportedly been on the run since they made some allegations against ADRA Liberia, stating that the organization has misused funds received from ADRA International for Ebola fight in Liberia.
They have never been heard or seen since the alleged comments against ADRA Liberia. According to a warrant from the Stipendiary or Associate Magistrate of the Paynesville Magisterial Court, Nelson B. Chineh, the defendants are charged with the commission of theft of property and misapplication of entrusted property.
The warrant further states that if found after the normal working hours, Sunday or Holiday, Jerry Doe and Olando Kanswen should be arrested and incarcerated at the nearest police station and thereafter be transferred to the Paynesville Magisterial Court the following working day.
According to Magistrate Chineh, the warrant can be served during the night hours and for so doing it constitutes the legal and sufficient authority to the person, who is in possession of it (the warrant). By Ramsey N. Singbeh, Jr. in Margibi – Editing by Jonathan Browne
