-Withdraws Case At Supreme Court

The former ruling Unity Party (UP) has withdrawn its lawsuit at the level of the Supreme Court of Liberia after a resolution.

It can be recalled last year the party expelled three of its executive members to include: Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Commany Wesseh, Patrick Worzie and Medina Wesseh for alleged violation of the party’s constitution.

The Supreme Court on November 12, 2019 dismissed the matter based upon instruction from the disputing party counsels requesting the high court to nullify the expulsion of those individuals without any reservation.

Joseph Boakai Standard Bearer, Wilmot Paye, National Chairman and Patrick Worzie, Secretary General and National Executive Committee Members (NEC) of the Unity Party have recently executed the stipulation of voluntary discontinuance, and terminated the above-entitled proceedings without reservation.

The process of discontinuance is consistent with Rule 3, part 2, of the 1999 revised rules of the Supreme Court which provides that “the appellant and appellee may, in vacation by themselves or counsel sign and file with the Clerk of the Supreme Court an agreement in writing directing the case to be withdrawn; and as to cost, shall pay to the Clerk any fee that may be due.”

Accordingly, one of the counsels for the complainants Cllr. Jonathan Massaquoi explained that the action to withdraw the matter from the court docket is based on the fact that both parties have agreed to put aside their differences for the interest of the party.

Cllr. Massaquoi furthered that, the Party is in the process of reconciling its members noting that the ruling of the Board of Commissioners of the National Election Commission (NEC) was a brilliant idea to reinstate those partisans that were allegedly expelled by the party.

Meanwhile, Commany Wesseh maintained that their expulsion from the party was illegal and not properly done.

Senator Wesseh maintained that what the Court has done was expected by the party, which is part of the process of rebuilding and rejuvenation decided upon by the BOC that they have expected. TNR
