EDITORIAL: Senator Varney Sherman Cannot Preside Over Solicitor General Designate’s Confirmation Hearing


H. VARNEY G. SHERMAN, Senator of Grand Cape Mount County must do the honorable thing and recuse himself from confirmation hearing proceedings involving Solicitor General Designate Cllr. Cephas, one of the defense lawyers for Sherman, in the controversial Sable Mining Bribery Scandal for which the Senator has already been indicted. Cephas as Solicitor General of Liberia handle such a high-profile case in an impartial manner. COMPLICATING THIS even further, Senator Sherman is head of the Senate Judiciary Committee which has the final say in whether Cephus is confirmed. SENATOR SHERMAN cannot allow himself to preside over a confirmation hearing in which he is clearly linked to one who is tasked with dispensing justice in a fair and impartial way.
