Senate Fines Agricultural Minister Jeanine Cooper LD$4,999 for Obstructing Legislative Function


The Plenary of the Liberian Senate has fined the Minister of Agriculture Jeanine Cooper Four Thousand, Nine Hundred Ninety-Nine Liberian Dollars ( $LD4,999) for ” Obstructing Legislative Functions “.

The punishment against the Agriculture Minister came as the result of due process by the Senate which found her guilty of the complaint filed against her.

After Legislative proceedings upon receiving a complaint filed by the Committee on Agriculture, Forestry, and Fishery against the Minister for consistent non-compliance, the Liberian Senate found the Minister guilty of the complaint.

The Senate placed a contempt charge of LD$ 4,999 for obstructing legislative functions which are part of constitutional powers.

The decision was reached after Montserrado County Senator Abraham Darius Dillon filed a motion that demands the Minister to pay said amount in the government’s revenue and provide a receipt upon payment.

The motion also contained that the Agriculture Minister Jeanine Cooper submit herself back to the committee for further investigation.

The motion from the Montserrado County Lawmaker reached the consensus of the Senate Plenary thereby acting upon it.

It can be recalled that the Committee on Agriculture, Forestry and Fishery sent a communication of complaint against the Minister of Agriculture for “consistently refusing to comply with the committee” to provide a report on the status and prospects of the Agriculture sector for onward decision by the Plenary. This, the committee headed by Margibi County Senator Jim Tornonla considered as a gross disrespect and obstruction to their workings.

According to Senator Tornonla, it was unfortunate and disturbing for such action from “a female Minister especially at the Agriculture sector”.

With the agreement from the Senate Plenary, the Minster of Agriculture Jeanine Cooper will continue the investigation after an unreleased document was discovered.
