Liberia: NEC Chairperson Surrenders to Court; Files Bond


MONROVIA — Lawyers representing the indicted chairperson of the National Election commission, Davidetta Brown-Lansanah on Friday, December 24, 2021 surrendered her to the court to face criminal prosecution.

This follows an indictment from the special jury of Montserrado County upon the request of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission.

Cllr. Micah Wilkins Wright on Friday surrendered the NEC Chairperson to the court by 1:40pm for prosecution where she was briefly detained and later served the writ of arrest and the indictment consistent with law.

However, the court has confirmed that suspect Brown-Lansanah’s legal team filed valid criminal appearance bond of US$367,000.00 to prevent her detention at the Monrovia Central Prison.

Her charges are money laundering & violation of the code of conduct for public official.
