Trial Judge Dismisses Motion against Team Kanubah -Calls it “unnecessary legal technicality”

MONROVIA: The Judge of the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court in Bong County has denied and dismissed a motion to strike a motion filed by the lawyer representing the former administration of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) in a protracted legal battle surrounding the disputed election of the media fraternity just as the Judge termed the motion as “an unnecessary legal technicality”

According to a press statement issued Team Karnubah, and signed by Raymond Zarbay, Chairman of the National Campaign Committee, Judge J. Boima Kontoe made the decision on Friday, 16 February 2024 during a hearing into the motion to strike which was filed on 23 December 2022.

The lawyer of the PUL former administration had filed the motion, challenging the 12 December 2022 Amended Petition filed by the legal team of the National Campaign Management Team of Julius Kanubah and Beatrice Sieh for the PUL leadership.

The PUL ex-administration’s lawyer had questioned the legality of the legal team of the campaign team of Kanubah–Sieh to withdraw and amend their original Petition for Declaratory Judgment, thereby asking the Judge to quash the entire suit because it was withdrawn and prematurely amended.

But in a resistance motion, lawyers of the campaign team of Kanubah–Sieh justified the legality of the Amended Petition, citing relevant civil and electoral procedure laws.

Judge Boima Kontoe therefore granted the request of the lawyers of the campaign team of Kanubah–Sieh  for the motion to strike to be denied and dismissed because it was an unnecessary legal technicality.

The denial and dismissal of the motion to strike is yet another legal victory for Team Kanubah–Sieh because by quashing the motion, the Judge can now hear and adjudicate the petition for declaratory judgment bordering on fraud underpinned by violations of the PUL Constitution by the former leadership.

Meanwhile, Judge Kontoe has cited the legal counsels and parties to the PUL 2022 Congress dispute for a Pre-Trial Conference on 26 February 2024, intended to see if both parties have reached a settlement on resolving the dispute outside of court, if not, present witnesses and evidence to commence the trial.

Before the pre-trial conference, Judge Kontoe has ordered counsels of the parties to the PUL dispute to confer with each other and reach a possible settlement, if not, the case will proceed in keeping with law as mandated by the Supreme Court, where Team Kanubah–Sieh secured a major legal victory in a landmark ruling of 19 December 2023 .

In this regard, Team Kanubah–Sieh is working with its legal counsel on the pathway forward as it has and will continue to brief media and civil society stakeholders who have been mediating to find a solution.

Until the pathway is found, Team Kanubah–Sieh admonishes its hundreds of supporters and those interested in the democratic development of the PUL not to honor any invitation in the name of the PUL.

Since November 2022 the PUL has not had any legitimate leadership, stresses Team Kanubah–Sieh, while describing as appalling the repeated action of Akoi Baysah and Daniel Nyakonah to disrespect the Court’s Stay Order of 15 December 2022, by impersonating as acting leaders of the PUL.

Together with Charles Coffey and Musa Kenneh, Baysah and Nyakonah are part of the PUL former administration along with their cronies that engaged in fraudulent practices including manipulation of the PUL Full Membership Register, Corruption, and staging an infamous Mid-Night Election.
