SUPREME COURT JUDGMENT AND FINAL RULING WITH UNANIMOUS DECISION AS LIBERTY WINS ITS PRINCIPLE LEGAL BATTLE IN THE WAR ON CORRUPTION
SUPREME COURT JUDGMENT AND FINAL RULING
January 10 2014
In a sudden and highly surprising move, after waiting for almost three years since the Summary Judgment was pronounced in Liberty's favor on March 11 2011, the Liberty Group of Companies suddenly received an assignment in Supreme Court for Friday afternoon, January 10 2014, at 2:00 PM for the Final Ruling in the Liberty vs MLME and Government of Liberia case.
The 57-page legal Opinion and 3-page Ruling delivered that same afternoon literally shocked the vast majority of people in Liberia who had often stated they thought it was impossible for Liberty to win the case in Liberia, but Lindstrom had held firm in his conviction that the honorable members of the Supreme Court would do that whihc was jsut and proper, exactly as the Lower Court had done.
When teh judgment was finally rendered, the FULL BENCH comprised of all five astute and honorable Justices in the Highest Court in the Land clearly and unequivocally rejected and denied the Government Appeal and ruled in Liberty's favor.bringing the first and most critical stage of Liberty's battle against corruption to its rightful and only justifiable conclusion – which powerful ruling by the Supreme Court of Liberia not only constituted another truly historic landmark Victory for Liberty but also a great step forward for the damaged reputation of Liberia amongst the watching international community as teh Supreme Court determined to rule on solid legal grounds and not allow themselves to be pressured or persuaded to succumb to external pressures from other branches of government as was often alleged in the past!
The following document is a copy of the actual 3-page FINAL RULING from the Highest Court in Liberia - unanimous, powerful, binding and irrevocable - declaring that the honorable Judge DID NOT ERR IN GRANTING SUMMARY JUDGMENT in the Civil Law Court - and stating that all Liberty mineral licenses are reinstated as per the judgment of the Lower Court, and all mineral licenses issued to other third party companies in privity with MLME over Liberty properties are null, void and of no legal effect, and the Judgment further stated that all such third party companies must immediately cease operations on Liberty licensed properties.
In simple terms, Liberty has clearly and irrevocably won the principle legal battle and the Judgment of the Supreme Court has become the company's EMMANCIPATION DECLARATION!
THANK YOU LORD JESUS AND TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!
