Members of the House of Representatives Tuesday, left in limbo as Liberia Drugs Enforcement Agency (LDEA) Commander, Martha Massaley remains mute on disclosing the name of Legislator she alleged of being a drug Trafficker.
Commander Massaley invitation at the House of Representatives was predicted upon a story carried in the Front-page Africa Newspaper titled “LAWMAKERS AMONG THE DRUG LORDS.” prompted members of that body to have invited her to provide details surrounding her allegation.
The LDEA Commander asserted that Lawmakers are aiding in Drug’s trafficking while speaking at an occasion organized by a Humanitarian organization named Hope for young People Inc, in observance of the international Day against Drug abuse and illicit drug trafficking on June 25, 2021 at the Liberia Dujar High school in Gardnerville Township.
But appearing before House of Representatives plenary on Tuesday, Commander Massaley begun her opening statement by apologizing to members of that body for her statement ” Let me say to my mothers, Fathers, and sisters that I am very sorry for my statement.” Martha Massaley asserted.
She noted that her statement at the occasion was in no way referring to current members of the House of Representatives, maintaining that such statement implicating Lawmakers to Drug trafficking was never made by her.
Lawmakers including Montserrado county districts #8 Representative Acarous Gray and Rustolyn S. Dennis of district # 4, demanded that the audio in which she allegedly made the allegation be play in open session .
Upon the playing of the audio, our reporter said, Lawmakers became even more angrier than they were.
Speaker Bhofal Chambers then asked his colleagues for a break of fifteen minutes (15minutes) to give the witness ( Martha Massaley) and others a chance to have a brief discussion and come out with a definite position.
Upon their return, Commander Massaley, complained of her eyes swinging and pleaded for urgent medical attention a request that was immediately accepted by that body.
The House of Representatives Speaker also instructed state securities to provide protection for Commander Massaley and her family until the entire matter can come to an end. ………………………30………………
