A ruling that should have established as to whether the Commercial Court at the Temple of Justice has the legal backing to hear cases involving millions of United States dollars against the government prior to its establishment in 2010, remains undecided. The controversy came about in a US$10.7 million vehicle debt case levied against the Liberian government by lawyers representing Prestige and Alliance Motor Corporation, owned by Lebanese businessman, George Haddad. State lawyers have argued that the court does not have the jurisdiction to hear the case. The Commercial Court was established by legislation in 2010 as a specialized court to provide efficient and effective resolution in commercial cases throughout the country. Despite the lack of jurisdiction argument, the court has demanded lawyers on the case to submit a five-page “proposed ruling,” which lawyers told the Daily Observer they have done. However, the court is yet to carry out its decision into the matter, which legal experts described as “very delicate.” According to one legal expert, “If the court agrees, it will give more business people that the government owed in the millions of United States dollars the opportunity to take similar action to collect their debt through the court.” Sherman and Sherman Law Firm represents Prestige and Alliance Motor Corporation. The firm filed an “Action of Debt” against the Liberian government for allegedly crediting a fleet of vehicles from 2003 to 2006, totaling over US$10.7 million, which the government has failed to settle. Besides the cars, the lawyers also alleged that the company provided spare parts during the transactions with the government, and has subsequently asked the court to give their client justice. In a counter argument, state lawyers admitted owing the Lebanese businessman, but are arguing that the court lacks jurisdiction to hear the matter.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Liberian Senate on its last day sitting before the Easter Break, yesterday received a letter from Senate Pro Tempore Emeritus Arma Zolu Jallah seeking the Senate’s approval on an annual basis, US$50 million appropriation in the national budget over a period of fifteen (15) consecutive years for roads.According to the Gbarpolu County Senator, who now chairs the Senate Committee on Public Works, the purpose of the budget is for the pavement of highway systems, freeways, major and minor highways and primary streets, among others.Senator Jallah, who regularly assists his kinsmen in the operation of yellow machines on his county’s feeder roads, recalled that “This road finance and trust fund proposal was made during my early years as President Pro Tempore of the Senate, but was never considered by this honorable body.”Notwithstanding the facts that roads make a critical contribution to the economic development and growth of a nation and result in important social benefits, Senator Jallah noted that it has “made it a compelling need for me to resubmit this proposal. ”The approval of the proposal, Senator Jallah’s letter, dated March 20, 2018, concluded, will attract and precipitate the migration of people to new environments “and will certainly boost local economies and facilitate infrastructure development. ”A motion by Senator Conmany B. Wesseh was passed to send the letter to the committees on Public Works, and Ways, Means, Finance, and Budget.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Officer Seumanutafa said that Paragas also was involved in the collision, possibly when Ramirez spun left across the road. He also suffered only minor injuries.165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter. Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! PICO RIVERA – A high speed race in an unincorporated area north of Pico Rivera resulted in the death of one driver, and an arrest for manslaughter for another. Brian Ramirez, 18, of Los Angeles, was killed while racing against Fitzgerald Paragas, 18, down Rosemead Boulevard at 90 mph around 7:00 on Sunday night, according to a California Highway Patrol report. Paragas survived the crash with minor injuries, but was arrested on suspicion of manslaughter, because of the death of Ramirez. “If you are in a high speed race, any injury in that race can result in you being charged with a crime,” said CHP Office John Seumanutafa. Paragas is being held in county custody at $70,000 bail and has a court date scheduled for October 9, according to Sheriff’s Department records. The two were driving side by side just north of Gallatin Road, when they came upon a slower moving vehicle in the right lane, according to the CHP report. To avoid the slower car, Ramirez pulled onto the right shoulder and accelerated past it, while Paragas passed it in the left lane. Ramirez lost control of his 2005 Mitsubishi Evo while on the shoulder and spun left across the concrete divider and into opposite traffic, where he collided head on with a 2005 VW Jetta carrying four people. Ramirez was pronounced dead at the scene, but the four people in the Jetta suffered only minor injuries, according to the CHP report.
