During the weekend, Montserrado County Attorney J. Darku Mulbah requested Stipendiary Magistrate J. Kennedy Peabody to issue a writ of search and seizure warrant to be served on the premises of the National Housing and Savings Bank commonly known as World Trade Center.
According to the writ the purpose of the search was to recover fake/unauthorized printed birth certificates, official documents, revenue flag receipt, stamps, Diploma, Degree, and the equipments such as computer, laptop, and typewriter, used for the printing of said fake instruments which are suspected to be within said building.
Bit in a conversation with the Capitol Times over the weekend, ALIPROSEC President Michael J. Dennis said members of his association are becoming increasingly frustrated over government’s continuous actions of searching and seizing their belongings.
“We are law abiding citizens and so this time around our computers must be brought back,” he lamented, noting, “we are going to test the justice system and if it fails us we will go radical because the items on the search warrant were not searched for; rather, they broke into our premises, seized our laptops and took them away. We are afraid that our items taken to the depot will never be returned upon the completion of the search”.
Mr. Dennis maintained that his organization is involved in legal activities. “We produce identification cards (ID) for legal entities; type and print work for schools in and around Monrovia,” he stated.
Allegations from government that his organization produces fake documents, Dennis maintained, are yet to be proven on more than three occasions by the Liberia National Police LNP, noting that in the absence of adequate employment opportunities from government, “we have made this place an employment hub, with more than 500 Liberian youths directly benefiting”.
