LIBERIA: Supreme Court Releases 90 Year-Old Kidnap Convict To Lawyer

The Supreme Court has released 90 year-old Mohammed Sedee Falee, who was sentenced early this month to ten years imprisonment for kidnapping, to his lawyer.
Falee is detained at the Monrovia Central prison for kidnapping his three children and sending them to his native Mauritania without the knowledge and consent of the mother.
He was temporary released to his lawyer, Cllr. Cooper W. Kruah of the Henries Law Firm on Wednesday, April 28, based on a mandate handed down from the Supreme Court to the Trial Judge due to a Guarantee Surety Note from his lawyer.
In the April 28 note, Cllr. Kruah said that the release will enable Falee bring the children from Mauritania back to Liberia, particularly to the Criminal Court “A”   effective as of  the signing date of surety guarantee note up to May 27, 2015.
“Should my client fail to live up to this promise as guaranteed in this surety /guarantee note, the Supreme Court should hold me personally and ensure that the legal punitive measures are taken against me, in so doing this shall constitute  the Court’s legal and sufficient authority,” the lawyer assured.
Defendant Falee was convicted and sentenced early this month by Criminal Court “A” Judge Roosevelt Willie to ten years imprisonment at the Monrovia Central Prison.
