Corruption Allegation Unsubstantiated -Court Documents Vindicate Cllr. Cooper Kruah

MONROVIA: Amidst claims of corrupt practices levied against Cllr. Cooper Kruah, Sr. who was nominated recently as Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Liberia, documents scooped from reliable sources which include court receipts and payment breakdown seem to point to a direction that the allegations are grossly unsubstantiated thus vindicating Justice Mister-designate  of all allegations.

In recent days, a couple of local dailies and radio stations have been publishing and broadcasting allegations of corruption against Cllr. Kruah, on account of claims made by one Edgar Sidney and his MARDCO rubber company.

Cllr. Kruah, according to the publications and broadcasts, was alleged to be liable in a US$58,814.08 saga and that the Grievance and Ethic Committee of the Supreme Court of Liberia had him culpable for allegedly defrauding a Liberian-owned company, Mano River Rehabilitation and Development Corporation (MARDCO).

According to the documents, Edgar S. Sydney, who is the representative of MARDCO, agreed to have paid Cllr. Kruah 20% of funds recovered from the petition for proper accounting filed against Mr. Edmond Tombette by MARDCO.

The case documents captioned, Mano River Agricultural Rehabilitation and Development Corporation, by and thru Edgar S. Sydney, President/CEO Voteh Che-Say versus Edmond Tombette, et-al, further revealed that Cllr. Kruah, along with Cllr. Nyanti Tuan and Cllr. Lofan Keneah, won the case for US$600,000.00.

A close scrutiny of the documents revealed that Cllr. Kruah would have received US$120,000.00, which is 20% of $600,000.00, but the three lawyers, Kruah, Tuan and Keneah received US$3000.00, meaning that Mr. Edgar Sydney still owes Cllr. Kruah, a balance of US$117,000.00.

It can be recalled that when Cllr. Kruah was nominated as Minister of Posts & Telecommunications by President Weah in 2018, Mr. Sydney paraded with the same allegations on several radio stations, demanding US$75,000.00, with the apparent intent to stop his (Kruah’s) confirmation by the Senate. But that campaign did not succeed.

Cllr. Kruah was confirmed by the Senate and served as Minister of Posts & Telecommunications, and Post Master General of Liberia from 2018 to 2023.

The documents further show disbursement to Mr. Edgar Sydney as follows:

May 22, 2012: US$21,500.00; May 24, 2012: US$7,339.24; October 19, 2011: US$4,000.00, October 26, 2011: US$4,000.00, and December 13, 2011: US$15,000.00, making a subtotal of US$51,839.24.

Other disbursements reflected include US$43,314.00 to Madam Rebecca Eze, upon the order of late Chief Justice Johnny Lewis; US$9,000.00 paid to the three lawyers in the case (Kruah, Tuan and Keneah); and US$1,186.00 paid as court expenses, making another
