The Supreme Court of Liberia has summoned the national legislature to a conference slated for today. The disclosure was made Tuesday by Senate Pro-Tempore Gbehzongar M Findley during session.
Senator Findley did not provide reasons for the court's citation but said the body will be represented by Senator Frederick Cherue of River Gee County and a legal counsel.
It is not known what may have prompted the invitation however, it is believed that the action from the court to summon the legislature may have derived from the controversial passage of a bill which seeks to certain portion of the Central Bank of Liberia Act of 1999.
The amendment of the CBL Act has sparked debate in the public domain, with some Liberians terming it as witch-hunt and intended to target certain individuals within government.
Some visitors at the Capitol who spoke to our reporter believe that the court decided to call the legislature and the aggrieved party to a conference before the bill is approved by President Sirleaf.
