Writ Of Certiorari Finally Ruled Today
Justice in Chamber on the Supreme Court Bench at the Temple of Justice, Cllr. Philip A. Z. Banks has assigned the final ruling on the writ of certiorari for today Wednesday at 1pm.

“You are hereby commanded to notify the parties in the above entitled cause of action or their legal representative(s) that the honorable Supreme Court of the Republic of Liberia will hear ruling in the cause on the 14th day of June 2017 at the hour of 1pm and that they are cited to be present for same,” the notice read.
The writ of certiorari is a judicial terminology that seeks an investigation into a ruling made by a judge on grounds that it has some missteps in its proceeding.
The writ was filed by the Government of Liberia through the Ministry of Justice and its prosecutorial team after a ruling of former presiding judge of the Criminal Court “C” Yamie Quiqui Gbeisay was not favorable to them.
The filing of the writ of certiorari by the government came as a result of a motion filed to the court to not admit the spreadsheets and checkbooks onto the record of court as evidence in favor of the government, but instead be dismissed.
The motion was resisted by the state and it was later considered to be temporal by Judge Gbeisay during his final ruling on the motion.
This situation regarding the judge`s judgment, prosecution filed a motion to rescind (which is to redraw his judgment), a motion which was sent to the then presiding judge at the Criminal Court “C” Temple of Justice, Judge Gbeisay.
However, in the ruling on the motion to rescind, Judge Gbeisay denied the state its request and hereby considered the resistance of the defendants having the motion dismissed.
The state has since gone at the Supreme Court before Justice Banks to hear and make judgment into the writ of certiorari since April 2017.
Justice Banks, who held the hearing and he sets the ruling previously and did not give the judgment and another assignment, said the judgment is hereby scheduled for today at the Temple of Justice in the Chamber at 1pm Wednesday.
It can be recalled that in May of 2016, the Global Witness report revealed the names of several government and former government officials were bribed to change certain portions of the Liberian law in favor of a British mining company, Sable Mining.
Cllr. H. Varney Sherman, E.C.B. Jones, Christopher Onanuga, Alex Tyler, Richard Tolbert, Eugene Shannon, Morris Saytumah, and Willie Belleh were alleged to have received US$ 950,000.
