Five Charged For Drug Trafficking

By Comfort M. Johnson, Intern

MONROVIA July 8 (LINA) -The Criminal Court “C” at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia has indicted five Liberian nationals for drug trafficking.

The five, Perry Dolo, Cyrus Slewion, Mohammed Bah, Augustine Saah, and Sekou Rogers, were arrested with ten bags of marijuana on November 11, 2013 in a police escort vehicle assigned to the Execution Mansion at the Tieni Checkpoint in Grand Cape Mount County.

The five are currently detained at the Monrovia Central Prison awaiting prosecution.

They have denied involvement in the act, but Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) investigator, Augustine Doe, testified in court Monday that the five defendants were arrested for involvement in the trafficking of drugs.

He also said that police commander Dolo was hired by one of the defendants, Augustine Saah, and paid US$450 to transport the drug from Grand Cape Mount County to Monrovia.

Meanwhile, Criminal Court “C” Presiding Judge Yusuf Kaba has postponed the case to Wednesday, July 9.
