The Monrovia City Court on Monday, June 4, 2018 acted on a writ from the Liberia National Police (LNP) by sending to jailed Abraham F. Fallah, age 34, over his alleged involvement in the death of John Albert in Kpelle Town community on the Air Field in Sinkor.   

Fallah is currently at the Monrovia Central prison or south beach pending court trial as a result of a situation which took place on May 29, 2017 in the Kpelle Town community on the Air Field in Sinkor.

The court’s decision is based upon a charged sheet sent to that court by the LNP against defendant Fallah over his alleged involvement in said murder case in which he (Fallah) allegedly hindered law enforcement.

Hindering of law enforcement is a violation of chapter 12, subchapter “A” section 12.4 of the revised penal law of the Republic of Liberia and one risk long time in prison if a guilty verdict is render down against them by the court.

“In violation of chapter 12, subchapter “A” section 12.4 of the revised penal law of the Republic of Liberia, defendant Fallah was arrested, acquainted with his constitutional rights, investigated and subsequently charged with the crime hindering law enforcement for purpose, knowingly and intentionally taking the criminal agency or murder weapon from the crime scene and throwing same away,” the LNP charge sheet stated.

The act by defendant Fallah according to the LNP was deliberate, calculated to hinder delays or prevent the discovery and a complete indifference to the value of human life.

The LNP charge sheet noted that after suspect Papie Vinton stroke the head of deceased John Albert with the stick, he gave the murder weapon and the face cap to defendant Abraham Fallah and they absconded from the crime scene.

The charge sheet further added “in view of the foregoing facts and circumstances, couple with eye witness’s accounts, the investigation has resolved to charge defendant Abraham Fallah with the crime of hindering law enforcement in violation of chapter 12, subchapter “A” section 12.4 of the revised penal code of the republic of Liberia, pending court trail.
