Court Jails 3 On Alleged US$73.5k Theft Charge

By Comfort M. Johnson

MONROVIA January 25 (LINA) – The Monrovia City Court has imprisoned three persons for allegedly stealing US$73,566 from the Cavalla Rubber Corporation intended to register the company’s vehicles.

Defendants Alexander Goah, George Kiadii, and Roland Bouyou, were on December 10, 2016 arrested by police and charged with criminal conspiracy, criminal facilitation, forgery, economic sabotage, theft of property and money laundering.

The charges were based on a complaint filed by the Deputy Managing Director of the company alleging that the three suspects took two managers' checks worth US$73,566 which were intended to pay for vehicles and equipment registration but diverted the amount to their personal benefits.

The three men were on Wednesday arraigned before court to answer to the charges levied against them.

The Police charge sheet stated that the money which was intended to be paid into the Government of Liberia General Revenue Account, was entrusted to defendant Goah, an employee of the corporation, who colluded with the other two to divert the money to their personal use.

The Police charge sheet also indicated that defendants Kiadii and Bouyou, who purported to be employees of the Ministry of Transport, conspired and colluded with Goah to deposit the two managers’ checks into the account titled ‘General Merchandise Account’ which they opened at the LBDI for the sole purpose of concealing money stolen from Government’s General Revenue Account.

According to the charge sheet, the money was divided among them as proceeds from the vehicle registration process.

During police investigation, the three men admitted to the crime and named their accomplices as Nathanial Bestman, Sam Johnson, Jerome Cassell, Bobby Nimley, Henry Dunbar and Carrin Baawo.  The six alleged accomplices are yet to be arrested.

Meanwhile, the three suspects are at the Monrovia Central Prison awaiting court trial.
