( principal indictee in the Government economic sabotage case, Ellen Cockrum, has reacted to her indictment for the first time.

In her reaction, Madam Cockrum said:”I am skeptical whether I will be given a fair trial in Liberia.”

Attempts by mylbsonline to get more reactions from the former LAA Boss concerning her indictment proved futile, due to repeated interruptions by one Melvin Johnson during an interview with her.

Last week, the Liberian Government indicted the former Managing Director of the Liberia Airport Authority and others for multiple offenses, including ‘economic sabotage.’

Meanwhile, Government has assured the former LAA Boss of fair trial.

Liberia’s Solicitor General, Cllr. Betty Larmie-Blamo, said:”There is no need for Madam Cockrum to fear, because the justice system is credible.”
