”The Islamic Community in Liberia is Mourning” ,what for ?


The Inter Religious Council of Liberia has termed as “Injustice” to the Islamic Community, recent Legislative decision taken against one of its members, Kabineh Mohammed Ja’neh.

Mr. Ja’neh was removed as associate Justice of the Nations’ final Court by 22 members of the Liberian Senate for a Judicial decision rendered at the level of the Supreme Court of Liberia specifically the road funds case.

The decision to remove Mr. Ja’neh according to the Secretary General of the Inter-Religious Council of Liberia, Musa Bamba, has placed the community in a state of “Mourning”.

Musa Bamba speaking at a Qur’anic Recitation and Memorization Competition ceremony said the Legislature latest action speaks volume to its ignorance in assuring good judicial system in the country.

The statement by the Liberian Islamist  is however in concurrence  to that of the Association of Liberian Journalists in the Americas (ALJA).

ALJA is also condemning in the strongest term the Liberian Senate for the controversial impeachment of Associate Justice Kabineh Mohammed Ja’neh of the Supreme Court of Liberia.

ALJA says the Senate’s action has cast a shadow on its credibility and deeply eroded the public’s trust and confidence in the country’s judicial system.

According to the Pro-Media Group, the shady manner in which some members of that august body conducted themselves in the recently ended professed impeachment trial of former Associate Justice Ja’neh.

The Association in a press release issued on April 2, 2019, says what transpired at the Liberian Senate for the past one month and consummated on March 29, 2019, under the guise of an impeachment process was a ”charade orchestrated” by the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) government to unseat the former Associate Justice from the Supreme Court for reasons best known to the administration.

But the Governemnt under its Ruling Coalition for democratic Change (CDC) is yet to respond and provide clarity   on what lots believe.
