Court Begins Probe Of State Lawyers For Alleged Tampering With Evidence

The ongoing case of forgery levied against the Political Leader and Standard Bearer of the Alternative National Congress, Alexander B. Cummings and two other executives will take another turn today, Wednesday, March 23, 2022 when the Monrovia City Court will begin investigation into the complaints of “prosecutorial misconduct” for tampering with evidence filed by the lawyers representing the ANC against the state prosecutors led by Cllr. Serenius Sayma

ANC Defense Lawyers, led by Cllr. Abraham Sillah on March 18, 2022, accused state prosecutors led by the Solicitor-General Syrenius Cephus of extracting several portions of social media exchanges and text messages from evidence presented to the court during discovery.

The Defense Lawyers contended that the extracted portions are critical and would render the charges as bogus and mere fabrication in the “forgery and criminal conspiracy” case of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) framework document.

The Defense Lawyers made specific reference to social media text messages and exchanges amongst the officials between July 2 – 19, 2020.

ANC Political Leader, Mr. Alexander B. Cummings, Vice National Chairman Daniel Naaten and Secretary General Aloysius Toe are facing trial for alleged alteration of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) framework document.

ANC authorities have vehemently rejected and denied the charges as being politically motivated and a conspiracy between the All Liberian Party of Benoni Urey and the  ruling CDC with ulterior motives.

State prosecutors’ first state witness, Theodore Momo, Chairman of the All Liberian Party of Mr. Benoni Urey, is currently undergoing cross-examination by ANC defense lawyers. Defense Lawyers are seeking to discredit witness Momo, that he lied under oath about the alteration of the CPP framework document.

Sources close to the court said the case will begin at 2:00PM today and will be presided over by Magistrate Jomah Jallah.
