House Suspends 3 Members Over Session Disruption

By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, February 26 (LINA) -The Plenary of the House of Representatives has suspended three of its members for acts incompatible with their status.   

Those suspended are Representatives Roland Ope Cooper of Margibi, Henry B. Fahnbuloeh of Montserrado and Samuel Kogar of Nimba counties respectively.

Cooper was suspended for three months without pay and allowances for insulting and assaulting Representative Adam Bill Corneh of Bong County in the House Chambers on Thursday, January 13, the Liberia News Agency reports.

Fahnbulleh and Kogar were suspended for one month each without pay and allowances, and requested to write letters of apology through the office of the Chief Clerk for disrupting sessions on January 13 and 15.

Plenary took the decision Thursday, February 26, based on recommendations contained in two different reports the House’s Committee on Rules, Order and Administration submitted to the body.

Plenary mandated the Committee to investigate separate complaints filed against the suspended lawmakers and others by Representatives Corneh and Wesseh Blamoh of Grand Kru County regarding their behavior on January 13 and 15.

The Committee said it conducted investigation into the complaints in keeping with the Rules and Procedures of the House.

Plenary endorsed the Committee’s recommendation requesting former Speaker Edwin Snowe and Representative Bill Twehway of Montserrado County to write letters of apology to it for their involvement in the January fracas at the House.

Meanwhile, Snowe has apologized to Plenary on behalf of his colleagues for their misconduct and appealed for reduction of their suspension since it was their first offense, but Plenary turned down his appeal.
