Ghost Hands Charged Justice Scott, Others! -As Chief Investigator Disowns Police charges. -Family feels vindicated

MONROVIA: The family of Cllr. Gloria Musu Scott, has termed as a clear vindication, recent outburst by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Monroe Dennis that the investigation findings in the Charloe Musu murder case did not suggest the charges levied against the defendants.

The spokesperson for the Musu family, Mr. Nathaniel Toe made the statement Monday, February 19, 2024, during a visit around the recently intruded residence of Justice Scott in Virginia, Montserrado County.

It can be recalled that the Head of the Police Investigation Team, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Monroe A. Dennis, about two weeks ago, made many startling revelations on a local radio (Hott FM), from the United States.

ACP Dennis on Phone from the US, informed the public through the local radio talk show that the investigation findings didn’t suggest the crimes mentioned in the indictment, but heavy hands interfered and insisted that Cllr. Scott and her family are charged as such.

Toe said the revelations by ACP Dennis are enough reasons why Cllr. Scott and three other family members should not even be in jail by now, because it shows clearly that the charges were politically motivated, manufactured and “criminally” placed in both the police charge sheet and the indictment.

He wondered why politicians were chasing Mr. Dennis everywhere, pressuring him and forcing him to sign unto an investigation report that he, Dennis, as Chief Investigator, did not agree with.

This, he said, is another confirmation that Justice Scott is a victim of political witch-hunt, and a target of wicked plot and concocted theories of lies and fabrication.

The home of Justice Scott, has, for the fourth time in a year, been invaded by strange persons, this time, vandalizing the property and making away with several items including a flat screen television set and other belongings.

Justice Scott and three members of her family are remanded at the Monrovia Central Prison awaiting hearing into an appeal filed before the Supreme Court following a guilty verdict handed down by what the family calls a compromised jury at the Criminal Court ‘A’ in November, last year.

The intruders have been arrested by help of angry community members who alerted police of the individuals’ presence in the compound.

Speaking in a rather frustrated and angry tune, Mr. Toe emphasized that there have been series of complaints (reports) of unidentified intruders accessing the compound, claiming to be authorized by Justice Scott, and making away with some valuable items, including personal belongings of the family, and sometimes sleeping in, according to some neighbors (eye witnesses).

Toe told journalists that the question of a possibility of intrusion into the former Chief Justice’s residence was a major contending issue during the murder trial, because investigators of the Liberia National Police ruled out any possibility that anybody could intrude into the house, a conclusion that defense lawyers vehemently resisted through evidence, including expert testimonies, insisting that there were many possibilities of intrusion, and that the murder was committed by an intruder on the night of February 22, 2023.

He added that during the trial at the lower court (Criminal Court A”), Defense raised the issue that unknown persons were still accessing the Compound and  making away with items, but Prosecution argued that it was a family member by the name of Anthony Musu who was going to the compound under the pretext of feeding the dogs, and Judge Roosevelt Z. Willie therefore ruled that no family member should visit, and that the LNP be in charge of the compound.

The family’s spokesman stated that the continuous accessing and intrusion of the compound with keys with which the intruders are opening all the doors, is a clear validation of the Intrusion alarm raised by Cllr. Scott and her family which Police said was FALSE INFORMATION TO LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS.

Mr. Toe maintained that these repeated incidents of intrusion are also a validation that the house is not as protected as the police made it to appear, and these have further contradicted the Government’s theory of NO INTRUSION, which is the only basis on which Cllr. Scott and family members were charged and adjudged guilty for killing another family member, Charloe Musu.

He also drew the public’s attention to the ongoing fight over hundreds of thousands of United States Dollars by Justice Ministry officials who were in charge of Cllr. Scott’s trial, amidst legitimate fears that the jurors were tempered with to bring down a guilty verdict.

Toe said that the family and many other Liberians still holds the view that jurors were tempered with, after Solicitor General, Nyanti Tuan was found liable for going to the Temple of Justice and visiting the jurors’ quarters during odd hours, for which he was fined US$250 (Two Hundred Fifty United States Dollars) and suspended from the trial.

He described as shameful and embarrassing the current trading of allegations amongst state prosecutors, including Montserrado County Attorney, Swahilu Sesay, Cllrs. Bobby Livingstone, and Adolphus Karnuah, among others, a situation he noted, deserves the attention of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC).
