Cummings Trial Postpone To Next Week -As Prosecution Drops Gloria Scott from Witness List

Amidst stiff resistance by Defense Lawyers, the Monrovia City Court has granted a request to postpone the trial till next week to enable state prosecutors retrieve the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP) “original” framework document from the National Elections Commission (NEC).

State prosecutors want the Political Officer of the National Elections Commission (NEC) Mr. Ignatius Wesseh to reappear and return the original CPP framework document filed with the NEC before its fourth witness, Mohammed Ali can testify.

Mr. Wesseh testified and was discharged by the Monrovia City Court on April 27.

Defense Lawyers of the Alternative National Congress vehemently rejected the request for postponement and described the recall of Mr. Wesseh as unlawful, and part of the continuous gimmicks by the state to baffle and delay the trial.

State Prosecutors without any reason have also dropped Counselor Gloria Musu Scott, from its list of 34 witnesses subpoenaed last week.

Counsellor Scott is former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Liberia and former Minister of Justice.

Unity Party Standard Bearer and Former Vice President Joseph Boakai whose appearance is still on hold, is among the 34 witnesses subpoenaed to appear and testify in the ongoing forgery and Criminal conspiracy trial involving the ANC Political Leader, Mr. Alexander Cummings, its National Chairman Daniel Naateeh and Secretary General Counselor Aloysius Toe.

The three accused ANC officials have vehemently rejected the charges and termed it as bogus and politically motivated as part of conspiracies between the All Liberian Party of Benoni Urey and the ruling CDC to thwart Mr. Cummings Presidential bid in 2023.
