Judge Debunks Media Report
…Complains Newspaper To PUL

By S. Siapha Mulbah (Cub Reporter)
The Monrovia City Court has denied media report linking a secret conversation between him and money launderer, Patrick Hermann of the Korlane Investment Liberia Limited Liability Company.
In a communication to the Press Union of Liberia’s (PUL) president dated January 13, 2022, Magistrate Jomah Jallah said that the publication made by the newspaper in its January 13 edition titled, “Solicitor General, Judge talking with the criminal” has no iota of truth and only intended to damage his personality.
According to him, there is no link of communication between him and any money launderer contrary to FrontPage’s investigation report of 115 incoming and outgoing calls between him and Co-defendant Patrick Wahi Hermann within a relative short period of time.
The Judge called on the office of the PUL President to call on the management of FrontPage Africa to prove the publication made against him and the Liberia’s Solicitor General Cllr. Syrennius Cephus claiming that his contempt power as a Judge will be used based on the outcome of the conference with the Press Union of Liberia.
“I hereby reject and categorically deny the publication as nothing less than blackmail, and further maintain that at no time I have ever communicated with any money launderer and therefore challenge the Newspaper to prove its allegation,” Judge Jallah stated in his letter.
FrontPage yesterday reported that through an investigation it conducted, Judge Jomah Jallah and Cllr. Syrennius Cephus had numerous exchanges of calls with no account as to the intention of the call log which could serve as a hindrance to the fight against money laundering in the case involving Korlane Investment Liberia Limited Liability Company
“Investigation has established that Solicitor General and the Magistrate of the Monrovia City Court, Jomah Jallah, have been holding telephone conversations with a key suspect in the money laundering case involving Korlane Investment Liberia Limited Liability Company, which was recently listed by the Financial Intelligence Unit as a shell company operating in Liberia,” FPA report said.
The report added that within the period between December 2020 to January 5, 2022, there were twenty-three calls exchanged by the Solicitor General and Patrick Wahi Hermann who FPA believes to be a major suspect in the scandal.
According to FPA’s report, the City Court Judge also had 115 incoming and outgoing calls between him and Co-defendant Patrick Wahi Hermann between December 2021 and January 5, 2022; noting that (FPA) is in possession of all the documents related to her investigation.
