Senate Secretary Criminal Case to Get Underway at Criminal Court C

Criminal Court ‘C’ at the Temple of Justice to resume jurisdiction in the alleged criminal case involving Liberian Senate Secretary Nanbolor Singbeh on Tuesday, August 17.

It can be recalled that Nanbolor Singbeh and 13 other defendants were indicted by the state on charges of economic sabotage, theft of property, forgery, and criminal conspiracy.

Assistant Justice Minister for Litigation, Cllr. Wesseh A. Wesseh believes it will be prudent for Singbeh to be relieved from his current position.

Assistant Minister Wesseh stated that anything short may dilute the essence of a free and impartial criminal trial, which he believes is not to convict, but to ensure that justice is properly served.

Singbeh and the other defendants were charged after a complaint was filed by two Czech Republic nationals for allegedly taking US$5M from a company.

The Czech nationals claimed that after expressing interest in the country’s business sector between June 2013 and July 2019 to establish a firm for the production of crushed rocks and other related activities, they were allegedly defrauded by Singbeh, who had a 30% share in the company.

According to the indictment, Singbeh designed a fraudulent scheme, along with the other defendants, to withdraw US$5M.

The Czech nationals claimed to have transferred over US$2.4M through Ecobank-Liberia, and US$102,000 to Afriland First Bank, but the company was never established and the equipment was reportedly sold by Singbeh and his co-defendants.
