Supreme Justice Cites Judge To Conference In ‘Bribery’ Case

By Comfort M. Johnson

MONROVIA, April 11 (LINA) – The Justice- in-Chamber at the Supreme Court, Cllr. Philips A. Z. Banks, has cited the presiding Judge of Criminal Court 'C'', Yarmie Q. Gbesay, to a conference Thursday based upon a petition for ‘certiorari’ filed by State lawyers in the ongoing Sable Mining bribery case.

Certiorari is a legal provision that calls for the review of a lower court's judgment, while it also provides for an appellate court to use certiorari as the formal instrument by which to review cases at its discretion.

State lawyers’ decision is said to be based on Judge Gbeisay’s refusal to rescind his decision on the admittance of email and spreadsheet evidence adduced in court.

They described his decision as inadvertent and called on him to permanently admit the evidence rather than insist that the pieces of evidence will remain temporarily marked until testified to by its giver Heine Van Niekerk.

The petition read: “By directive of His Honor Philips A. Z. Banks, Associate Justice presiding in chambers, you are hereby cited to a conference with his Honor on April 13, 2017 at the hour of 3:30p.m. in connection with the above captioned case.

According to the petition, Justice Banks has also ordered Judge Gbesay to stay all further action in the matter pending the outcome of the conference.
