The court is now demanding the Ministry of Justice and the Montserrado Group Industries to produce the container on today, Friday, June 19 because it is clear that the final destination of the container is Guinea but unfortunately, it surfaced in Liberia.
A letter dated June 10 under the signature of the acting Justice Minister, Cllr. Nyenati Tuan, mandated the Managing Director of the National Port Authority, Bill Twehway, to turn over the container to the Montserrado Group Industries.
The letter further requested that the Ministry of Justice holds on to the delivery of the above mentioned container pending investigation as Minister Tuan raised several concerned about the investigative report by the Liberia National Police on the disputed container.
The letter stated that there exists a contract with an offer, acceptance and consideration therefore to cancel same, it should be done by mutual consent through the court therefore the government acknowledged that the Guinean Company which is a party to the agreement had already made a US$ 306,760.45 payment for the formation of the partnership.
However, the Ministry of Justice explained that the consignor cannot or should not unilaterally cancel the agreement because there is an offer, acceptance and consideration made by the consignor pending the delivery of the goods.
