Court Grants Bail To 8 Alleged Criminals
Date Uploaded: Dec 07, 2013

MONROVIA, Dec 7 (LINA) -The Criminal Court ‘A’ at the Temple of Justice has granted bail to eight alleged criminals who have over-stayed the statutory period at the Monrovia Central Prison without trail.

Those granted bail on murder and other charges during the 22nd sitting of the Court are Mark Jerry, Michael Dennis, Abraham Boima and Somah Karmo.

Others are Sekou Kamara, Abraham Fallah, Cheyee Gaye and Victor Tyee.

Giving the ruling Friday, Judge Korboi Nuta said after a probe into prolonged detention, the court was convinced that a number of the detainees had been kept for long periods without trial.

He said continuing to keep them in detention without justification would appear that the court is aiding their accusers.

Judge Nuta argued that the law empowers the Court to dismiss a case for failure to prosecute.

The Judge placed the eight bailed inmates into the custody of their lawyers, who were told to produce them whenever the court so requests.

‘’We will send for you when we are ready for you’’, Judge Nuta told freed men.
