MONROVIA, August 13 (LINA) -The Supreme Court of Liberia Wednesday began handing down final opinions in cases on the court’s docket for the May Term of Court.
According to the Liberia News Agency, Chief Justice Francis Saye Korkpor said the process will continue up to Friday, August 15, at which time the court will be closed for its May Term.
In the Supreme Court ruling Wednesday, Appellant Joseph Gardea was sentenced to life imprisonment for raping 12-year-old Decontee Gardea to death early this year, while Madam Musu Mayango of Monrovia was sentenced to six months for Aggravated Assault after a petition for Re-Argument filed was denied by the court.
Mr. Allen R. Brown was also ordered by the court to immediately pay to his wife Meata Hage Brown US30,000 retroactively and US1,500 every month for persistent non-support, as well as for failing to comply with an earlier lower court ruling.
Meanwhile, the process continues Thursday at the Temple of Justice.
