LIBERIA: Criminal Court “D” Sentences Six Notorious Armed Robbers

Flash Back: Suspected armed robbers

Criminal Court ‘D’ at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia has sentenced six notorious armed robbers between two to four years at the Monrovia Central Prison for robbing several residents in the ELWA Community.

Amos Binda, Perry Kanu and Prince Gbah were slapped with four years’ imprisonment each and also ordered to pay US$1,700 for items stolen from their victims.

Gabriel Farkarlum and Varney Keita were sentenced to two years in jail each while Jamel Kollie was given seven months in jail, while Musa Kante set free by the Court.

The Court’s May 28 judgment was a result of the convicted armed robbers’ open confession in Court to avoid criminal prosecution consistent with the Civil Procedure Law of Liberia.

They were indicted in 2017 during the February Term of Court for placing several residents of the ELWA Community at gunpoint and threatening to kill them if they raised alarm as their valuables were being carted away.
