Liberia’s Justice Minister Cllr. Benedict Sannoh says government will prosecute the political leader of the Movement for Progressive Change or MPC, Simeon Freeman after the businessman-turned politician cited rumors as basis that government has established a death squad to eliminate ten persons, mainly politicians, including him (Simeon Freeman).
Mr. Freeman has since gone into hiding after the Liberia National Police invited him to assist with investigation relative to his claims. Police have subsequently deployed at his residence. “… I’ll also want to make it clear that those rumors that have been going around that the government wants to take action against Simeon Freeman is true. We will prosecute Simeon,” Justice MinisterSannoh said Tuesday before reading an autopsy report over the death of former Liberia Petroleum Refining Company or LPRC Managing Director, Mr. Harry Greaves.
Before going into hiding, Mr. Freeman told a press conference last Thursday that if anybody was an enemy to the late former LPRC Managing Director Mr. Greaves, it was the government.
Currently, the government has not announced a particular charge against Mr. Freeman, but Minister Sannoh says “when Simeon Freeman comes out, he will know his charge.”
