(lbsonline/Liberia)-Montserrado County Representative, Munah Pelham, says she did not break any law by taking two ladies to Nigeria to contest the Miss ECOWAS Pageant.

Representative Pelham’s statement was in reaction to the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism’s earlier statement that it will investigate the saga and those involved would face the full weight of the law.

At the time, the Information Culture and Tourism Minister, Lewis Brown, maintained: “Liberia’s representation at the ECOWAS Beauty Pageant without any reference to the Ministry is wrong and illegal. Those involved will face the full weight of the law”. 

The Montserrado County lawmaker, however, said: “I have broken no law for taking two Liberian girls to the Miss ECOWAS Pageant”.

“I say it again, there is no law that compels one to seek permission from the Ministry of information before taking any Liberian girl to the Miss ECOWAS Pageant”.

She spoke to mylbsonline Monday 14th January 2013 at the Capitol in Monrovia.

Miss Pelham is also winner of Miss MALAIKA, and former contestant of the annual Miss Liberia Beauty Pageant.

“Liberia is a member of ECOWAS. The Information Ministry does not need to be informed about the country’s representation at the Miss ECOWAS event”, Representative Pelham contended.
