Justice Minister Christiana Tah and Gender and Development Minister 'Pinkey' Julia Duncan Cassell have been summon to appear before the plenary of the House today to provide explanations over their alleged role in the evasion of a 72-hour prison sentence by suspended Supt Grace Kpan of Montserrado County, now declared a "fugitive" by the House.
Though some accounts state that Minister Tah was not present at the Monrovia Central Prison when Supt. Grace Kpan evaded going to prison and Gender Minister has denied involvement in the saga. The House ruled last week that both ministers assisted suspended Acting City Mayor of Monrovia Mary Broh to "aid and abet" Mrs. Kpan in escaping the 72-hour jail term.
The lawmakers also accused the Justice Minister of "deliberately refusing" to implement their mandate as Attorney General of the country thereby leading to the run away of Mrs. Kpan from going to prison.
Rep. George S. Mulbah's motion to have the two officials appear before them today was overwhelmingly voted upon last week thus pushing the House to invite the two ministers to clear their sides.
In a related development, Sergeant-At-Arms Gen. Martin Johnson, told legislative reporters yesterday that both Ms. Mary Broh and Mrs. Kpan remain at large.
"They remain on the run; I am still searching for them; I will arrest them wherever I see them," he insisted.
