Prosecution second witness is expected to take the stand Wednesday to testify in the case involving National Port Authority (NPA) ex-managing director Matilda Parker and comptroller Christiana Paelay, who are on trial for allegedly duping government of US$837,950.
The request for the second witness to appear in court was made Monday when both prosecution and defense lawyers rested the testimony of witness Blamo Koffa, Chief Investigator of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC).
Parker and Paelay have pleaded not guilty in the case, but prosecution requested for nolle prose quoi in favor of co-defendant Deneah Flomo, a request that was granted by Presiding Judge Blamo Dixon of Criminal Court ‘C’ on Thursday, January 7.
Prosecution lawyers noted that they have dropped all charges against co-defendant Flomo to enable him serve as state witness in the case.
Meanwhile, the case continues on Wednesday, January 13.
