The head of the legal department of Ecobank-Liberia has counted successes the bank has made in its legal pursuit, saying that several landmark criminal and civil cases have been won, except for labor cases.
The bank has been at the center of lawsuits either against it or against those who continue to seek its downfall through unbecoming acts of stealing.
An upbeat Attorney-at-Law Lois Nimely Nyenpan is glad that her institution has made inroads in some of these cases, saying that the bank has won four major cases over the period of time.
"The department has won so many cases for Ecobank-Liberia, but for this year (2013) we have won four major cases for the bank and the legal battle is on and hoping that we will win more cases," she noted.
Ecobank-Liberia has suffered some losses in the hands of some of its employees and suspected criminals, some of whom have been prosecuted.
In an interview with this paper at her Ecobank-Liberia offices recently, Atty, Nyepan said the legal department of the bank is working with the entire management of the bank in ensuring that corrective measures and other mechanisms are put in the right place to stop would-be criminals from stealing from the bank.
More than that, Atty. Nyenpan said the bank has taken some radical measures aimed at going after creditors who have defaulted on paying back what was credited to them.
In another development, Atty. Lois N. Nyenpan has been elected and inducted into office as the second Vice President for the Association of Female Lawyers of Liberia (AFELL).
She was inducted into office along with some female lawyers of AFELL on October 10, 2013 at the head offices of the women group.
According to her, AFELL is prosecuting many cases in the various courts in the country including criminal, civil and labor cases.
She who said the primary objective of the new code officers is to prosecute would-be rapists in accordance with the Rape Law of Liberia vowed not to leave any stone untouched in prosecuting would-be rapists.
"Those who intent is to engage into the act of raping our children, mothers and sisters and those who will be caught in said act (Rape) will be prosecuted," she stressed.
On achievements of AFELL, she disclosed that sub-offices have been established in three counties including Grand Bassa, Maryland and Bong, and added "there are plans to construct additional offices in other counties in the future so that the presence of the AFELL can be felt all over.
