LIBERIA: Man, 37, Charged With Forgery; Forged President Sirleaf’s Signature

A 37-year-old  man, Alvin L. Venn,  has been incarcerated by the Monrovia City Court for submitting a fake letter to the Ministry of Justice suggesting that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf had appointed him to work at the ministry.
Venn was arrested by the Liberia National police (LNP) on charges of forgery, issuing false documents and counterfeiting based on a complaint filed by Assistant Justice Minister for Administration and Public Safety, Atty. Tony Sonkarly, on behalf of the ministry.
The police charge sheet said defendant Venn submitted the letter to the Ministry of Justice on which he forged President Sirleaf’s signature.
It said scrutiny of the degree and other academic documents presented by Venn and fact-finding with the office of the President clearly showed that the letter did not emanate from the President’s office and that his entire documents were fake.
Meanwhile, defendant Venn is currently detained at the Monrovia Central Prison awaiting trial.
