Monrovia, Liberia-Coalition for Democracy Change Chairman Mulbah K. Morlu has distanced himself from accusations brought against him by Police Inspector General Col. Patrick Sudue recently.
On Tuesday at a Senate hearing, Col. Sudue told Lawmakers, he had earlier written Chairman Morlu and Representative Acarous Gray to cooperate with an on-going police investigation to establish circumstances that led to the flogging of deputy Police boss Marvin Sackor.
Deputy director Sackor was allegedly beaten by some CDcians at the headquarters of their party in Congo Town after a riot that ensued between members of the ruling party (CDC) and opposition Liberty Party.
Addressing a news conference on Friday, Mr. Morlu said “the CDC rejects in no uncertain terms that the police did not write any CDC official inviting them to a hearing, including Representative Gray” as stated.
He termed the statement as “reckless, unfounded and baseless”, noting that it derives from the figment of Col. Sudue’s imagination.
In an angry tone, the CDC chairman expressed frustration of being referred to as “person of interest” by police boss which he said is a misplacement and mis-characterization of the phrase.
“I did not commit a crime to be referred to as person of interest”, says Morlu.
Police spokesperson Moses Carter at a press conference held at LNP headquarters yesterday, told Journalists, the deputy director was flogged in the presence of CDC stewards including Mulbah Morlu.
Mr. Morlu is quoted as saying, “what compounds the hypocrisy in Col. Patrick Sudue is that he goes to the Senate looking for scapegoat to safe his neck” thereby lying under oath which is reprehensible.
“I have called upon the police director to do a retraction of his statement that I was never served a letter”, stating, he has the law at his advantage.
The CDC chairman warned Sudue to behave in accordance with acts governing moral principles of the Country as police Chief.
Mr. Morlu also caution the police boss who he professed lied under oath, to be more concerned about fighting increasing criminal activities across the Country.
He said the police boss should stop lying and scapegoating and go after those who continue to make threating statements against the peace process of the Country.
