Court Orders Eviction of CDC; Payment Of US$50k In Rental Arrears
By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, September 24 (LINA) – The Supreme Court has ruled that the opposition Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) be evicted from the property of the late Martha Stubblefield Bernard located in Congo Town where its offices are located.

The court also ruled that the party pays into her executors’ account the amount of US$50,000 as withholding rental.

The high court ruling was read Thursday by Associate Justice Sie-A-Nyene G. Yuoh in a case that grew out of an “Action of Ejectment” filed by some children of the late William Thomas Bernard and the CDC against the administrator of their late mother’s estate.

The court said its ruling is based on the failure of the late Bernard’s children to prove that their late mother had no right to the property in question and could therefore not rule against the administrator of their late mother.

The high court also based its decision on the will of the late William Thomas Bernard that grants his wife Martha Stubblefield Bernard full rights to the property.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has ordered the Sixth Judicial Circuit Court of Montserrado County to resume jurisdiction over the case and ensure the enforcement of its ruling.
