Jury To Decide ‘Mercenary’ Case Next Tuesday

By Comfort Johnson, Intern

MONROVIA, June 6 (LINA) - Following months of arguments in the mercenary trial at the Criminal Court “D” at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia, the case will be handed to the jury for deliberation and subsequent verdict next Tuesday.

According to the Liberia News Agency, Presiding Judge Emory Paye disclosed this when the prosecution and defense counsels rested their arguments on Friday.

Judge Paye said immediately after closing arguments, the court will charge the jurors with the responsibility to proceed to the jury room, deliberate and come up with a verdict the same day.

He told the counsels that it is mandatory they adhere to the date, June 10, 2014, and be present in court as required under the practice and procedure of the law.

The 13 alleged mercenaries were arrested between 2010 and 2012 for their alleged involvement in cross-border attacks in Ivory Coast, leading to the deaths of several persons, including seven UN peacekeepers.

The 13 alleged mercenaries are currently detained at the Monrovia Central Prison.
