Congress for Democratic Change Montserrado County District #7 Representative Solomon George, has been kicked out of court by Magistrate James Dudu.

Representative George was thrown out of the Monrovia City Courtroom last Friday for arguing with the judge at the start of a pretrial hearing involving four partisans of the CDC.

The confrontation between the lawmaker and the Magistrate occurred after Rep. George entered the courtroom when Magistrate Dudu was presiding over the case of Mulbah Morlu and two other CDCians.

As the hearing was ongoing, Rep. George entered the court and cried out to Morlu, “My general in the struggle; this guy is truly a CDC general,” as the entire court turned to look at him (Rep. George). His action was met with a swift response from Magistrate Dudu: “Who are you? Don’t you know that we are in session? Who do you think you are?”

The Magistrate then warned the CDC lawyer that the Representative George would be thrown out of court by officers if he continued to misbehave, but the CDC lawmaker did not stop his unruly act in the court something that led Magistrate Dudu to force him (Rep. George) to leave the court premises.

As the CDC lawmaker was forcibly led outside, he issued series of threats to Magistrate Dudu, saying, “I want you to remember that there is a time and season for everything. This is your time you foolish judge, but one day our time will come and you people will see what we will do with you.”

Korjee, Morlu and co-defendants were charged with aggravated assault, kidnapping and sent to jail when their lawyers and fellow CDC partisans failed to raise bond in time for their release.  They were accused of torturing one Gbeh Salinto Montgomery, believed to be one of the youth executives of the party.
