-Says He Was Never Jailed
Following reports in the media that he was jailed for alleged forgery, the Chief Communications Officer of the Patriotic Entrepreneurs of Liberia (PATEL) has clarified that at no time he was sent to jail by the Magistrate of the Monrovia City Court at the Temple of Justice.

Several newspapers including this paper Monday, September 4, 2917, reported that Mr. Caesar Morris, owner of I-café in Sinkor, was sent to jail by Magistrate Kennedy Peabody of the Monrovia City Court following a writ of arrest that emanated from a complaint filed by Presley S. Tenwah, embattled former acting chairman of PATEL.
Mr. Morris who walked into our office Tuesday confirmed that he was dragged to the Monrovia City Court by Mr. Tenwah, but was later released by the court based on a Criminal Appearance Bond filed by his lawyers, and as such was never jailed.
Mr. Morris was arrested on August 31, 2017 and forwarded to the Monrovia City Court to answer to the charges of Criminal Coercion, forgery and harassment based on Mr. Tenwah’s complaint in which he alleged that he (Morris) intentionally placed information on an illegal Web-site, portraying him as a criminal who has been dismissed as the head of PATEL.
Mr. Tenwah alleged that the PATEL communication boss informed the public through the publication on the “illegal website” that he (Tenwah) continues to act in the capacity, thus tarnishing his good character and reputation.
Also, Tenwah alleged that Mr. Morris conspired and used fake document and misleading hatred as well as damaging his business reputation and also forged his letter heads, an action he claimed injured his character.
Morris, CEO of I-Café, denied of forging the signature of the letter head and also the signature of the incorporators of the PARTEL, stressing that if he had forged said documents as claimed by Mr. Tenwah, the issue should not been before the court for a settlement.
As Chief Communication officer of the PATEL, Patriotic Entrepreneurs of Liberia, it’s his responsibility to inform the public about activities of PATEL, noting “based on this, I was able to inform the general public about his dismissal.”
He stressed the decision was taken by the Incorporators, Executives and members of PATEL, and that he only published it in his capacity as communication person of the body.
A document dated August 12, 2017 and in the possession of this paper revealed that Mr. Tenwah was dismissed from his position by his fellow Incorporators and Executives of PATEL for what they termed dictatorial and negative behavior creating irreparable rift and causing disenfranchisement to several incorporators, executives and members of the organization.
But Mr. Tenwah has since challenged his dismissal by taking the matter to the court.

As first reported
“You are hereby commanded to arrest the living body (ies) of the CEO of I Café, Caesar Morris,” the writ of arrest of August 31, 2017, a copy which is in possession of this paper, reads.
The arrest is as a result of a complaint filed to the court by Presley S. Tenwah, embattled chairman of PATEL for an alleged criminal act committed by the I-café boss.
Under the order of Judge J. Kennedy Peabody of the Monrovia City Court, the writ orders the sheriff of the court to bring the living body (ies) of Caesar Morris at the Temple of Justice to answer, “to the charge of Criminal Coercion, Forgery, and Harassment.”
It is alleged by Tanwah, private prosecutor, that on August 11, 2017 August 31 the defendant purposely, unauthorized and intentionally placed information on an illegal web-site in the form and manner that he (Tanwah) is a criminal who has been dismissed as the head of PATEL and continue to act in said capacity.
In his complaint, Tanwah also alleged that the web-site, tarnished his good character and reputation and that the accused conspired using fake document and misleading hatred as well as impaired his business repute and also forged letter head of the private prosecutor to injured his character.
Morris alleged act according to writ is unlawful, wicked, illegal and intentional and is in violation of sections 10.2, 14.23. & 14.27 of the New Penal Law of Liberia.
However, the CEO of I Café was lastly seen being escorted by a city police assigned at the court to the Monrovia Central Prison located on the UN Drive.
The CEO will be released upon a valid bond filed because the crime is said to be billable.
