In Ellen Corkrum Case: Prosecution to Drop FIBank US$56,750 Theft Charge, But…

first_img“If the ongoing legal negotiation is resolved, then prosecution would drop criminal corruption charges against the First International Bank (FIB), because they have already paid back the US$56,750 transferred from the account of the Liberia Airport Authority (LAA), to Melvin Johnson and Associates in the United States,” Montserrado County Attorney Cllr. Daku Mulbah, disclosed last Friday.The bank was indicted in 2013 for allegedly conspiring with co-defendants Ellen Kwame Corkrum and Melvin Johnson and Associates to make an unauthorized transfer of funds in the tune of US$56,750 from the account of the Liberia Airport Authority (LAA), which Corkrum was managing director.The money was transferred to Melvin Johnson and Associates account#91806942, held at JP Morgan Chase Bank in the United States of America (USA).They were later charged with the commission of the crimes economic sabotage, theft of property, criminal conspiracy and misapplication of entrusted property by the government.Interestingly, the bank had admitted transferring the US$56,750 and had paid it back.Despite the payment, the charges are yet to be dropped against them.But, addressing journalists, at his Temple of Justice office, Cllr. Mulbah in his carefully crafted statement, said, they have been working out plan to drop the charges against the bank, adding, “there were still some legal issues that need to be addressed.”He did not mention the legal issues; instead he went on to say, “FIB was the first defendant that we were considering dropping charges against them, so that they would serve as one of our witnesses during the trial.”Recently, Cllr. Mulbah wrote Criminal Court ‘C’ to drop similar charges against another co-defendant, the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI) to testify on their behalf, which request had been granted by the court.“We have dropped the criminal charges against LBDI and that could also happen in the case of FIB,” the Montserrado County Attorney disclosed.“We just need to resolve our negotiation before we can come out with the decision,” he emphasized.According to him, the bank’s management had admitted to the commission of the crimes of which they were indicted and had restituted the money that was withdrawn from the LAA’s account at the FIB. “What you need to know is that they had admitted their bank was used to transfer the money from the account of LAA to Melvin Johnson and Associates in the US.  Based on that, we can drop the charges and likely use them to help us prosecute the other defendants. But, we are still discussing,’ he reiterated.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Dbacks president Derrick Hall Franchise still f

first_img D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ It worked then. It could work again. But not all the time.Sooner or later the Cardinals defense will falter a bit or special teams will fail to come up with a big play. It’s the NFL, it happens. And when it does, the offense will need to be there to pick up the slack.They’ll only do so if the QB — whoever it is — brings his “A” game. Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Kevin Kolb wasn’t particularly good against the Patriots. He completed just 56 percent of his passes, averaged 5.2 yards per attempt. His touchdown pass was for all of two yards, and he missed badly on a couple of throws that could have led to touchdowns. Be honest: when the Cardinals blocked the third quarter punt and had the ball first and goal from the New England two, you feared they would not be able to punch it in. That’s the sign of a punchless offense, and it was tied to the play of the QB.Kevin Kolb not losing the game for the Cardinals is not the same as Kevin Kolb helping the Cardinals win the game, and while he made some big plays, he missed on far too manyKolb threw just five passes further than 10 yards down the field, severely limiting what Larry Fitzgerald could do as well as the offense in general. Now it’s possible the offensive gameplan was incredibly conservative, either because that’s what the defense was giving them or because the coaches were afraid to really open things up. Then again, there’s also a chance Kolb is so concerned with making a mistake he’s hesitant to take any type of chance down the field. The irony is that Kolb won the same way John Skelton did last season, only a little different. Whereas Skelton made more mistakes he also made more big plays. Kolb did neither Sunday.
