Sorious Subjects Judiciary to Ridicule

Since Sorious Samura perpetuated his Aljazeera scam on Sierra Leone, he has had willing allies in a section of the media fighting to give credibility to his timber rubbish. Even as at now, they have continued to make believe that the run-away Sorious Samura still has a reputation left inside Sierra Leone. This is in the vain hope that their readers are not intelligent. However, what has stunned many Sierra Leoneans is the interview given to one of these newspapers by Sorious Samura as published yesterday July 2nd 2012. According to Sorious Samura as quoted by that paper, indeed a Criminal Summons was prepared by Momoh Kontes lawyers to be served on Sorious but it was, at the last moment withheld on orders from above.


The fact is that legally, no person, from above (or below), has the right to with-hold a criminal summons that has been issued to be served on another person. So, if Sorious is saying what Premier News is quoting him to have said, that is a damaging indictment on integrity of the Sierra Leone Judiciary and justice system. Many journalists and court attendees witnessed live as Sorious Samura was served his Criminal Summons last Tuesday June 26th 2012. They had watched him flee from a bailiff the day before (Monday).


If someone is now having the barefaced cheek to say no summons was served on Sorious Samura, then the Judiciary has a lot of questions to answer. I hope that is not the case. This newspaper will be gravely perturbed if it turns out the service of summons on Sorious was not recorded or logged down as a service by the bailiff who served him.


Meanwhile, whoever told Sorious that orders from above can withhold Criminal Summons from being served, just further exposed the poor O Levels holder to more mockery of his ill grasp of issues. No above authority has such powers in Sierra Leone. Even the Attorney-General does not have the powers to issue a nolle prosequi until AFTER the summons has been served and the proceedings have commenced. Lets wait to hear what the Judiciary has to say about this orders from above latest Sorious ridiculous nonsense.


Meanwhile, on Page 8 today is reproduced our transcript of what happened in Court this week. It speaks for itself about strength of the ACCs case. It also speaks much, of Sorious Samuras credibility.Talking about Sorious credibility, I disagree with the learned ACC Commissioner on this issue. Sorious is not a brave or courageous patriot. NO!


Sorious is just a cowardly fellow who tried to destroy the image of my country in a poorly executed hatchet job. When he has been exposed, he simply ran. He ran like a coward. He is certainly not a courageous patriot.He is a cowardly, deceitful man, putting on a brave face on the disorientating reality of his ongoing disgrace.
