PHOTO CAPTION LIBERIAN VICE PRESIDENT, JOSEPH N. BOAKAI:
In the face of mountain Ebola fight, a disease that has taken the lives hundreds of Liberians, the Liberian National Police has reportedly written the Minister of Justice requesting the immediate investigation of the Country Vice President for his alleged link to the formation of an interim Government.
A local weekly, The Independent Newspaper in its September 15, 2014 edition quoting a communication in its editorial possession dated September 3, 2014 written by the Director of the Liberian National Police, Chris Massaquoi to the Minister of Justice, Cllr. Christiana Tah, craved for the investigation of Vice President Boakai .
In the communication, the Liberian Police Chief also called for the investigation of the former Auditor General of Liberia, John S. Morlu, II, Dr. James Teah Tarpeh and others mentioned in the National Chronicle Newspaper which led to the indefinite closure of paper.
The National Chronicle Newspaper prior to its closure by the Liberian Government featured in many of its front page headlines on the information of an interim government in the United States to unseat the current Government of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
The paper named prominent Liberians including Vice President Boakai as some of those to head that new arrangement, these reports by the National Chronicle also led to the arrest of its Publisher, Philipbert Brown.
But the National Police in said communication to the Justice Minister on the immediate investigation of the Vice President also vindicated the National Chronicle from any wrong doing in its reportage, and emphasized the need for all those linked to the alleged plan, including VP Boakai be thoroughly investigated.
