(lbsonline/Liberia)-Former Police Inspector General, Attorney Munah Sieh-Brown and four others, have pleaded not guilty of committing any crime.

The Liberian Government recently charged the five suspects with multiple criminal offenses, including Economic Sabotage.

The two women and three men were arranged at Criminal Court “C” at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia Monday 18th February, 2013 to answer to the charges.

Their denial comes after the Court read their indictment to them to ascertain their plea.

Government lawyers and those representing the accused are selecting a 15-man Jury to listen to the case and determine whether or not the criminal charges brought against the five suspects are true.

Earlier, Criminal Court “C” Judge, Yousif Kaba, cleared Cllr. Beyan Howard to represent the legal interest of Attorney Munah Sieh-Brown and the four others in the Economic Sabotage case.

Cllr. Howard was cleared after he presented a copy of his expired contract with government to prosecute criminal cases that government is party to in the country.

One of the lawyers, wanting to plea for the five accused persons, Cllr. Charles Abdulai, was, however, stopped from doing so until he can submit a copy of his contract with government.

Recently, government lawyers requested the Court to stop Cllr. Beyan Howard and Charles Abdulai from representing the legal interest of Attorney Brown and the other accused on grounds that they were on contract with government to prosecute criminal cases, and not to defend the accused.
