Rep. Kolubah Runs Back to Court on Suspension by the House

A few days ago Montserrado County District #10 lawmaker Yekeh Y. Kolubah threatened to drag to court the leadership of the House of Representatives if he is prevented from attending special sessions of the august body. He has gone right ahead and done just that.

Following a Writ of Prohibition filed by Representative Kolubah to the Supreme Court, Justice-in-Chambers, Associate Justice Joseph Nagbe has communicated with the House Speaker, citing the leadership of the House of Representatives attend a conference. They are expected to appear on Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at 2:00 p.m.

Justice Nagbe in his citation letter ordered the leadership of the House of Representatives to stay away from all other proceedings or actions in the matter, pending the outcome of the conference.

Representative Kolubah was suspended weeks ago by the plenary of the House of Representatives with 24 votes in favor and 7 against, but the controversial lawmaker argued that he was suspended from attending 16 plenary sessions of the House of Representatives, which in his mind had already elapsed.

The CPP lawmaker said in accordance with their rules he is not excluded from attending special plenary sessions. He said that his colleagues are not comprehensively analyzing the issues, but are reading the rules backwards.
