Court Dismisses Quincy ‘B’ Writ of Arrest, Drops Charges Against Manager

The late Quincy ‘B’

Traffic Court Judge at the Temple of Justice Jomah Jallah has dropped charges against the manager of the late Quincy “B”. Judge Jallah has ordered the writ of arrest of the body of the late Quincy “B” dismissed.

The judge`s decision was based on the sheriff `s report. The sheriff noted that the living body for which the writ prayed for by the Ministry of Justice and issued by the Traffic Court is dead.

Judge Jomah immediately on April 11, 2017 dismissed the case against the Quincy “B”. Recently, the Ministry of Justice noted that defendant (Quincy B”) drove on March 3, 2017 in the area of 1st Sinkor Monrovia, Liberia and was involved in an accident that resulted into death, injuries and property damage and was charged and sent to court.

Quincy ‘B’ manager, Louis Mc Carthy was charged for consent of unregistered vehicle and failure to maintain proof of financial security. However, Cllr. Beyan Howard who defended McCarthy`s interest said that he, Mc Carthy should be released of the crimes against him because he has shown proof to the police that the vehicle does not belong to him, but to the late Quincy “B” and the counsel furthered stated that, the hand to hand bill of sale, the passport of Quincy B is a clear evidence that the vehicle belongs to Quincy “B”.

Cllr. Howard told the court that the late Quincy “B” was under the duty to have registered the vehicle and maintain insurance policy before operating it as required by the Revenue Code of Liberia.

However, the counsel who represented the state interest did not oppose to Cllr. Howard and since the state interposed no objection the case is ordered dismissed.
