(lbsonline/Liberia)-Former president Charles Taylor’s family has taken legal action against government in demand of benefits for Mr. Taylor.

The spokesperson of the Taylor family, Sando Johnson, made the pronouncement openly in the senate’s plenary Tuesday 29th January, 2013 in Monrovia.

Senator Johnson said: “The family lawyer, Cllr. Cerina Cephas, filed the law suit to the civil law court at the Temple of Justice.” 

Senator Johnson’s law suit pronouncement comes in the wake of the senate’s decision to discuss Taylor’s recent communication to that august body within two weeks.

“I want to, however, commend members of the Liberian senate for accepting Mr. Taylor’s communication, but we will seek redress through court process”, he further said.

The former Liberian leader recently communicated to the senate demanding all benefits government allegedly owes him as 21st president of Liberia.
