Govt Says No Proof in Rep Dennis’ Claims

The Government of Liberia yesterday, Wednesday, April 27, 2022 said it found the claims made by Representative Rustolyn Suakoko Dennis to be based on hearsay with no substantive proof that could warrant a full-scale investigation by the Ministry of Justice after a conference meeting involving the leadership of the House of Representatives and select members of the Cabinet after she raised an alarm recently that the government is after her life.

According to a press release issued by the Ministry of Information, Culture Affairs and Tourism (MICAT) and signed by the Minister, Ledgerhood J. Rennie, the exhaustive meeting was chaired by Speaker Bhofal Chambers, and included Deputy Speaker J. Fonati Koffa and other ranking members of the House of Representatives. 

The Executive Branch was represented by the Minister of Justice, Cllr Frank Musah Dean, Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Williametta Piso Saydee Tarr, Minister of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism, Ledgerhood J. Rennie and the Police Inspector General Colonel Patrick Sudue among others.

It was also agreed that the Minister of Justice, who headed the Executive Branch’s delegation, look into the Paynesville Magisterial Court’s Writ of Arrest issued against the District Four Representative in a private matter involving her and a lady she identified as Cytarus Dahn.   

The Minister is asked to advise the leadership of the House of Representatives on the legality of the writ in a matter the Representative believes is a misdemeanor which should not have warranted such a writ.

“Meanwhile, the Liberian Government wants to make it categorically clear that it is not in the business of taking away the lives of its citizens, needlessly to talk about a well-known public servant.

“It is worth noting that politics in the country has long gone past the ugly days of violent reprisals. The government continues to receive international plaudits for its democratic credentials, consolidation of the country’s peace, respect for the rule of law, political pluralism and tolerance”, the release said.

Representative Dennis in recently took to her official social media page, made some startling posts about her life been threatened and implicated the CDC led government.

She said in her post: “I believe CDC government is after my life; I strongly believe they want to kill me there; Remembered these words as I speak!; If I go missing no it’s because of my believe; If I am found dead! No AUTOPSY please … just let me be; The government is witch hunting me. They want to kill me in my opinion; Remember me!; Remembered the work I have done; and Remembered what I intended to have done. Remembered me”.
