The Liberia National Police has invited Mike Jabateh, a Liberian citizen for questioning in relations to a social media video footage where threats were directed to the life of the Chief Justice, Francis Korkpor.
Mr. Jabateh’s invitation is aimed at understanding the intent of his statement and how such statement could endanger the life of the Chief Justice of Liberia.
It can be recalled that while addressing the press on behalf of same aggrieved citizens of Ganta, Nimba County who got affected from the court’s eviction ruling, Mr. Jabateh was heard indicating that if anything should happen to any member of the Mandingo ethnic group, he will personally take away the life of Chief Justice Korkpor.
The public can be assured that the fundamental rights of Mr. Jabateh to legal representation throughout the investigation and other Miranda rights will be duly observed while he faces questioning from LNP investigators.
