Defendant Denies Withdrawing US$66k, L$449k In Misapplication Case

By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, October 10 (LINA) – Defendant Suzatte Binda Blake has denied withdrawing US$66,000 and L$449,515 from her assigned Mobile Money merchants’ account as indicated by the management of Mobile Money.

Blake said the above when she took the stand recently in the Lone Star Cell US$66,000 and L$449,515 misapplication case being tried at Criminal Court ”C” at the Temple of Justice here in Monrovia.

The amounts constitute the value of goods given her for supply to stores, gas stations, pharmacies, bus stops and Mobile Money deposit that she allegedly withdrew immediately after it was put into her account.

The amounts also included Mobile Money, scratch cards and SIM cards intended for sale and proceeds deposited into the mobile money account of the company.

“The manager is aware that my assigned merchant account is also used for agent to buy and deposit,” she said during cross examination.

“It was not until after six months in February 2015 when the manager contacted me on the alleged error in the deposit of the said amount into my mobile money merchant account,” she explained.

According to her, the amount was far above the L$35,000 deposit limit of the account.

Blake was on February 23 charged with “Misapplication of Entrusted Property” by the Grand Jury of Montserrado County.

She was one of the company’s regional supervisors who had several mobile money agents under her supervision.
