Montserrado County District#7 Rep. Solomon George (Coalition for Democratic Change) yesterday appeared before the Monrovia City Court to stand trial on his alleged threat to strip naked an employee of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI).

The CDC lawmaker is facing multiple criminal offenses that include disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, and munching.

He admitted to the charges when he was arraigned at the court.

At yesterday’s hearing, Rep. George’s case did not go as scheduled because his legal team appealed for the case to be re-scheduled, which both parties (prosecution and defense) accepted.

After accepting his request, Magistrate Kennedy Peabody immediately allowed Rep. George to go home without securing a criminal appearance bond, on grounds that he was a lawmaker and could not escape the country.

Apart from allowing Rep. George to go home, the court initially did not make him sit along with other accused on the prisoner’s bench.

Police alleged that on October 23, Rep. George entered the building of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) to search for one Mrs. Macactah Wreh Togba, said to be chief inspectorate.

When Rep. George entered the building, the complaint claims, he threatened to beat and naked Mrs. Togba, whom he had accused of beating and having authorized his Administrative Assistant, William Wea, handcuffed.

The CDC lawmaker “aggressively walked into the ministry verbalizing that he will beat and naked Madam Togba.”

After Rep. George did not see Madam Togba he immediately returned to the ground floor where he allegedly destroyed a water cooler, a floor pot, among others.

  1. CDCian Solomon George supports George Weah and this is how they plan to deal with women. I am from Ganta and I will vote for Joseph Boakai. I voted for Prince Johnson in the first round but now I am voting for Boakai in the second round. CDC came here in Nimba and damaged property and beat people, causing marketers to be scared. All my family will support Boakai because CDCians are very violent towards everybody.

    • @Madea Gonpu, this has nothing to do with the support of President Weah, or CDC administration, before you intervene with your comment, I believe you have read the communication above well and then understood in the police report that Mrs. Macactah Wreh Togba, who is a chief inspectorate had given an order for the Administrative assistant of the Representative William Wea for which he was beating and handcuffed, for such action prompted the lawmaker to act in such direction.

BUT AT LEAST WE CAN BRING IT UNDER RAPID CONTROL. BUT IF CDC WINS, DEATH AND DESTRUCTIONS WILL BE PROLONGED OR INDEFINITE! A HINT TO THE WISE IS SUFFICIENT! VOTE FOR JOSEPH N. BOAKAI!!

  6. “CDC THUGs”…Wake up Liberian from all counties!!! Voting CDC in office is self destruction. All sensible and reasonable people vote with your senses & Vote UP / Boakai. Please do not give the key of your lives to these shallow minded people. Internationally they will fail you…No major foreign investors under CDC Government. CDC Government can’t employee you youth. First the school system in Liberia now is a joke. The uneducated teaching the uneducated. Under UP most of us will be encouraged to leave our six figured professional job to join the rebuilding of Liberia. But with CDC I will not migrate to Liberia for there will be no security and freedom. Above all, your dollars will be stolen by these criminals and no development

  8. The modification to this episode is that the country is taking notice that the justice system is involved and the culprit is accounting for his action and let’s all wait and see the outcome.
