Sitting in its September Term of Court, Civil Law Court Judge Boima Kontoe has issued a stay order on the authority of the Ministry of Public Works to stop the demolition of the property or Intestate Estate of the late Dr. Jeremiah Harris administered by Mr. Sam T. Solomon.
The stay order which was issued recently on Public Works Minister Antoinette Weeks, also warned Minister Weeks that since the matter is before the court, it is sub-judicial for said Ministry to carry out any demolition.
The property or Intestate Estate in question is located on Benson Street in the city of Monrovia in Montserrado County.
Judge Kontoe also ordered Public Works Minister Weeks to appear before court and show cause why she should not be held in contempt concerning interfering in a matter that is before court.
"The Minister of Public Works is further ordered to appear before court and show cause why she should not be held in contempt for interfering in a matter that is before court," Judge Kontoe ordered.
According to a copy of the Stay Order, hearing into the matter has been scheduled on the 25th day of October 2013 at the hour of 1: pm.
