MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Civil Law Court has frozen the accounts of alleged fraudster Sheik Bassirou Kante.
Mr. Kante is currently undergoing criminal investigation in the United States, after being arrested for money laundering.
Judge Kennedy Peabody freezing order was issued to all commercial banks in the Country on May 11, 2022,, where Bassirou Kante reportedly has his savings.
The action was triggered by a Justice Ministry’s petition seeking to freeze Sheik Kante’s accounts with the banks, consistent with law.
As a result of the application filed by the Justice Ministry, the Court has issued a Writ of Summons for the ten commercial banks.
The banks are to appear on or before May 13, 2022, to respond to the Justice Ministry’s application.
