It can be recalled that Korlane Investment Liberia Limited Liability Company was indicted for money laundering, theft of property, wire fraud and criminal conspiracy. Those indicted are Korlane Investment Liberia Limited Liability Company through its president and corporate agents, Evgeny Nikisuik, Diega Patrick Wahi Hermann and others to be identified.
Accordingly, in an official communication dated January 13, 2021, Judge Jallah described the newspaper publication as false and misleading , saying it is only intended to damage his hard earned character and reputation.
"I hereby reject and categorically deny the publication of a story in its January 13, 2022 edition captioned: ‘Solicitor General, City Court Judge in Communication with the criminal’. The publication is nothing less than blackmail, because at no time I have ever communicated with any money- launderer, let alone Patrick Wahi Hermann," Judge Jallah stated.
Judge Jallah asserted that the allegation that he had conversation with money- launderer called Patrick Wahi Hermann as claimed by the paper is false and that it has no iota of truth.
"I, therefore, challenge the FrontPage Africa newspaper to prove these reckless and irresponsible allegation made against me as a person," he uttered.
It can be recalled that the FrontPage Africa newspaper in its January 13, 2022 edition, published that the Solicitor General Cllr. Syrenius Cephus and Monrovia City Court Judge Jomah Jallah had a telephone conversation with key suspects in the major money laundering, theft of property wires fraud and criminal conspiracy case.
The paper reported that document in its possession shows that Cllr. Cephus from December 2021 and January 5, 2020 placed and received 23 calls from Patrick Wahi Hermann, who is a major suspect in the scandal.
The paper also reported that when it contacted Cllr. Cephus for comment, he didn't provide a response relating to the matter nor confirm whether or not he placed and received those calls.
