Defendant Pobleh Wea and Nah Wollor were arrested based on a complaint filed by Judge Ousman Feika, alleging between July 2021 to January 2024, they received over two hundred thousand Liberian Dollars in funds from the parties’ litigants.

The amount was intended to be deposited in an escrow account to fulfill judgments of the Court proceeding, which they confirmed were lodged into the accounts at the UBA Bank.

The investigation also established that the defendants, Nah and Pobleh, received the funds and deposited same into an escrow account, but with criminal intent withdrew all of the US Dollars components, and the same was used to settle their problems, instead of giving the money to party litigants.
