Liberia: Nat'l Scout Council Orders Commissioner Removed!

The National Scout Council (NSC) of Liberia Scout Association (LSA) is warning the embattled Acting Chief Commissioner Moses F. Shellu to stay-off the premises and or all functions of the association or be dealt with in accordance with their rules and regulations.

All nine members of the Council reached the decision on December 4, 2012 at an emergency meeting owing to a longstanding leadership crisis within the association.

Count 13 of a 14 count resolutions by the NSC, a copy of which is in the possession of this paper states, "whereas, the Annual General Assembly (AGM) resolved that the Chief Commissioner Moses F. Shellu be suspended pending the result of his financial report as mentioned in resolution 4 and that his Deputy Prince Sheriff takes charge of his responsibilities until February 2013 AGM is convened."

The Council resolved to the action base on Mr. Shellu's alleged failure to properly account for a US$80,000.00 received from the President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf so as to revamp the LSA.

The December 4, 2012 pronouncement by the NSC is an enforcement of a September 1, 2012 AGM resolution held at the GAbiel Kpolleh High School in New Georgia Estate.

The Council believes such action, if adhere to by Mr. Shellu, shall remedy the longstanding leadership crisis which has characterized the LSA for several months.

All efforts to contact Mr. Shellu for his reaction to the Council's decision proved futile, as his cellular phone rang endlessly without any response. He also did not respond to two text messages sent by this reporter.
