Accused Saytumah Files US$125k Bond

By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, January 6 (LINA) – A day following his indictment by the Government of Liberia, co-defendant Morris Saytumah has filed a US$125,000 Criminal Appearance Bond with the First Judicial Circuit Court “C” at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia.

Filed on Friday, January 6, the surety bond is guaranteed by Omega Insurance Company.

Defendant Saytumah, a sitting Senator of Bomi County, is among several current and former government officials facing charges of Bribery, Economic Sabotage, Criminal Conspiracy, Criminal Solicitation and Criminal Facilitation in the Sable Mining bribery case.

The matter was trigged by the release of a report by Global Witness in which it alleged that the officials received an estimated US$950,000 from the UK-based Sable Mining Company to alter the Public Procurement law of the country to grant it access to the iron ore-rich Wologizi Mountain in Lofa County.

Since the release of the report, government has dragged to court several officials, including Senator Varney Sherman, Representative J. Alex Tyler, Christopher Onanuga, E.C.B. Jones and ex-mines minister Eugene Shannon.

Saytumah was indicted along with defendants Shannon and Willie Belleh.
