The Resident Pastor of the Lakpazee Community Church in Monrovia, and also the Deputy Chaplain of the Supreme Court of Liberia, Rev. Cisco Isaac Brown has expressed fear for his life due to his critical stance on how his home country, Liberia is been govern by the George Weah-led Government.
Rev, Brown who many described as a true man of God usually in his sermons tell his congregations to respect constituted authority, and serve God in the way that he will be pleased.
At the Supreme Court of Liberia where he served as Deputy Chaplain, his sermons also at the chambers of the Supreme Court criticized the Judiciary for failing to dispense justice to the poor.
He told them that if they refused to do the right thing, God will punish them. He has always frowned on the manner in which the George Weah-led government is running the country. Rev. Brown noted that the rampant corruption coupled with the mysterious deaths of Liberians including the three auditors and two officials of government from the Central Bank of Liberia and the Internal Audit would not go unpunished.
He accused the government of doing nothing to protect its citizens as the cases have been swept under the carpet. These messages have not gone down well with some higher ups in the judiciary and the government. The cleric church has been branded as an opposition church and threats have been rained on him and members of the church. On September 18, 2021, Rev. Brown was threatened by a group of youths who are supporters of the CDC in Lakpazee Community where he had gone to cut his hair.
The youths threatened that they can kill anyone from the church including him because they don’t like the CDC government, stressing that nothing will come out of it. Since that incident he and his family have been living in fear as several nights strange men have been seen around his home and asking about his whereabouts.
On June 7, 2021, at the 4th National Judicial Conference in Monrovia, the cleric was openly threatened by the Chief Justice Francis Korkpor for what he termed as disgracing him in front of his guests. The Chief Justice who was very furious over a sermon delivered at the opening accused the cleric of always saying negative things against the judiciary and that he would ensure that he is dealt with.
According to him all of these threats were reported to the Liberia National Police, but up to present there has been no redress from the police.
