Who Is Telling The Truth? - Justice Minister Or Deputy MICAT Boss

There are conflicting accounts emanating from the Government of Liberia (GoL) regarding the Henry P. Costa’s arrest warrant saga, with the Deputy Minister for Press and Public Affairs at the Ministry of Information, Culture Affairs and Tourism (MICAT), Eugene Fahngon asserting that there is a writ to have him (Costa) arrested upon his return to the country, while Justice Minister Frank Musa Dean, on the other hand, has said there is no arrest warrant out for political talk show host Costa.

It can be recalled thaton Thursday, November 14, 2019 at the Ministry of Information regular news conference in Monrovia, Deputy Information Minister Fahngon informed Journalists that Costa would be arrested upon his return to the country on 19 December 2019.

He is quoted as saying, “as there was a writ of search and seizure at Mr. Costa’s Radio Station( Roots Fm), there was also a writ to have him arrested upon his return to the country”, averring that no one is above the law, the same way he was arrested and sent to jail, similar thing through the legal process will be followed for Costa and others who will come in conflict with the laws of the land.

The tough talking Deputy MICAT boss further warned Liberians, especially supporters of Costa not to be caught preventing the arrest of Costa as doing so would be punishable by law.

“Any attempt by anyone to obstruct Justice, he/ she will face Justice,”he intoned.

However, Justice Minister Dean dismissed claims of an arrest warrant for the political talk show host.

“There is no writ of arrest from the court and the Ministry of Justice has not given any such order of arrest,” Minister Dean told a local news agency.

At the same time, Costa has said the assertions by the Deputy Information Minister Fahngon warrant his dismissal.

Moreover, he pointed out that the conflicting accounts by the two senior government officials arescaring and send out a negative signal about the country’s security to the globe, especially some Liberians who are in the diaspora and may have plans to return to their motherland for the Christmas Season but may be in doubt due to current situation.

The political commentator, therefore, maintained that Liberia is not safe for him, and therefore, he will not return home as previously planned.

Despite the economic situation facing the nation and its People, Liberia is safe and secure as the people are currently enjoying an uninterrupted over fifteen years of peace and there is no need to panic, said a senior Government official.

Meanwhile, the million dollar question on the lips of several Liberians is who is telling the truth?–Justice Minister or Deputy MICTA Boss.
