Senator Johnson Debunks Indictment Rumors
By Wilfred Gortor, LINA

MONROVIA, February 17 (LINA) - Nimba County Senator Prince Y. Johnson has clarified that he has not been indicted by any criminal court as has been speculated in some quarters.

Senator Johnson termed such information as “gossip” and a deliberate form of negative propaganda being circulated by some individuals who, according to him, live only by telling lies.

Speaking to legislative reporters at the Capitol Building in Monrovia Tuesday, the Nimba lawmaker said he is inspired by such lies because they make him grow stronger whenever he hears them.

It can be recalled that recently Senator Johnson along with five other legislators represented Liberia at the Inaugural Session of the 4th Legislature of the ECOWAS Parliament in Abuja, Nigeria.

While in Nigeria, it was widely speculated that Senator Johnson would have been arrested and indicted for crimes he committed during the Liberian civil war as head of the Independent National Patriotic Front of Liberia (INPFL) warring faction.

Senator Johnson noted that this speculation was also high among some of his colleagues in the legislature.

He explained that he was overwhelmingly elected twice by his colleagues of the Senate to form part of the Liberian delegation to the ECOWAS Parliament, something that testifies to the fact that he has no criminal indictment against him.

He believes that he would not have been elected twice by his colleagues if rumors about his indictment were true, adding “Let the criticisms continue. There will always be critics so I encourage them to criticize because it helps us to grow stronger and stronger.”
