LNP Dismisses 3 For Conspiracy, Armed Robbery

MONROVIA, Aril 11 (LINA) - The Administration of the Liberia NationalPolice has announced the dismissal with immediate effect and subsequent prosecution of three police officers and a police informer for their alleged involvement in criminal conspiracy and armed robbery.

An investigative report submitted to the Inspector General of Police for implementation named the officers affected as Emmanuel Wilson, former Chief of Organized Crime; John Kollie, former Chief of Anti-Robbery; AlexanderJabbeh, former Agent of the Anti-Robbery Unit of the Liberia National Police and Daniel Ricks alias MONK, a Police informer.

The decision comes following a year of investigation by the Ministry of Justice, according to a LNP press release.

The three affected officers and the informer have been turned over to the Crime Services Division for processing and subsequent forwarding to court for prosecution in line with the Justice Ministry recommendations.

At the same time, the LNP has also reinstated five officers after the Ministry of Justice panel exonerated them of the charges of armed robbery and criminal conspiracy levied against them by the Major Crime Unit of the Liberia National Police.

Those exonerated and reinstated are former acting Commissioner of Crime Services Division, Jessey Harris; Inspector Raffell Wilson, Superintendent Sam Gballah, InspectorVarney Samah, ACP. T. Edwin Swen, and Jonney Dean.

On December 2, 2015 former Police Inspector General C. Clarence Massaquoi mandated the Major Crime Unit of the Crime Services Department of the LNP to launch a full-scale investigation into allegations of police improprieties levied against some officers of the Crime Services Division.

The officers at the time were immediately suspended for time indefinite to face investigation for their alleged involvement in the commission of the crimes.

Meanwhile, Police Inspector General Gregory Coleman has commended the Ministry of Justice for professionally handling the investigation involving the LNP senior officers.

The Liberian Police Chief called on the affected officers to make use of the court system to exonerate themselves and restore their image, and admonished those  reinstated to return with more vigor to serve the people of Liberia.

He warned the returning officers to be focused as his administration will not relent in taking administrative action against any officer who will undermine the police code of ethics.
