MONROVIA, LIBERIA – Lawyers representing the House of Representatives in the ongoing impeachment trial of Associate Justice, Kabineh Ja’neh, on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 presented their last witness and documentary evidence in the case.

Annie Constance, age 94, who is accusing Justice Ja’neh of fraudulently acquiring her property, took the witness stand to testify and face cross examination.

Madam Constance told the trial: “Justice Ja’neh bought the property in 1996 from her son, who is no more alive, without my consent. The transaction took place between Justice Ja’neh and my son while I was in exile”.

According to Witness Constance, she was unaware of the deal until she was evicted from the property on 14th December, 2018. Meanwhile, Chief Justice Francis Korkpor has denied a motion for Judgment of Acquittal, filed by Justice Ja’neh’s defense team.

The trial has been adjourned to resume Monday, March 18, 2019 within the Chamber of the Liberian Senate at the Capitol Building in Monrovia.
