Senator Varney Sherman Dropped Bodily Taken To Hospital At VP Boakai’s Petitioning Program

Taken Senator Sherman in his car after he dropped on the floor during a program at the Capitol Building

What appeared to be an unforeseen situation at the Capitol Building, home of the Liberian legislators took place today when Grand Cape County Senator and Former Chairman of the ruling Unity Party (UP) dropped unconscious during a petitioning program of Vice President Joseph N. Boakai for president by some members of the National Legislature baffled every member at this occasion.

Senator Sherman who was bodily held up by some bystanders after dropping to the floor of the Capitol Building was rushed to a local hospital for prompt medical check, while some of his colleagues stood by dumfounded, pondering over his situation.

The Grand Cape Mount Senator who is currently undergoing prosecution for his alleged role in the Global Witness/Sable Mining Bribery scandal over the past months has lost weight since the starts of this case.

The Special Presidential Task Force set up by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is been chairman by one of his professional colleagues, Cllr. Jonathan Fonati Koffa alone with some legal experts who are doing all in their powers to him to justice.

Few weeks ago, the lead prosecuting lawyer of the Special Presidential Task Force, Cllr. Theophilus C. Gould died following a brief illness, and was buried last week in his home town, Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.

Efforts by the GNN to get a word from members of the ill Senator about his health situation has proven unsuccessful.

Detail will follow in our subsequent report.
