The Liberia Civil Society Network condemns and expresses its utter disappointment with the Sheriffs of the Monrovia Magistrate Court for disrupting the recent Special Congress of the Liberia Football Association.
On Saturday, November 20, 2021, the court sheriffs, under the direction of Magistrate Quincy AQGarnett of the Monrovia Magistrate’s Court, issued an alleged subpoena in connection with a complaint filed by the Stages Football Club, a third division team. based in Paynesville. City. Stages Football Club has filed an injunction complaint with the Monrovia District Court that LFA President Mustapha Rajii refused the club’s participation as a delegate to the LFA Extraordinary Congress.
Group in a press release said: âOur examination of the nature of the complaint by the Stages Football Club shows that the subpoena issued by Associate Magistrate Quincy AQGarnett lacks any legal basis and substance to issue. The Football Club, in its complaint to the Court, confirmed that it was a club of the third division. As stated in its complaint to the court, the LFA’s membership in Congress by statute does not include third division clubs. This clearly makes the Stages Football Club ineligible for any Liberia Football Association congress â.
The Liberia Civil Society Network wants it to be categorically clear that Magistrate Quincy AQ Garnett of the Monrovia High Court made an absolute error in issuing a subpoena against the president of the Liberia Football Association during the trial. its extraordinary congress at the Samuel Complex Kanyan Doe. The sheriffs’ actions for even issuing a subpoena on a Saturday, under the direction of Magistrate Garnett, amount to abuse of power and violations of freedom of assembly. We view the court’s actions as a ploy to undermine the credentials and leadership character of Mr. Mustapha Raji.
Therefore, the Liberia Civil Society Network calls on the tribunal not to dance or play the political bet of a few individuals within the LFA podium who intend to derail Mr. Mustapha Raji ahead of the LFA elections slated for early 2022. We also urge LFA executive committee members who are determined to create chaos in the LFA for personal gain to abstain and focus on the LFA. working together for the forward march of the Liberia Football Association.
The press release signed by the group’s general secretary, Francis BS Collins, and approved by its executive director, Sensee K. Kiadii noted.
