Liberia: Supreme Court Justice Denies Release of Top Opposition Politician Brother on Bail


MONROVIA – Oliver Dillion, brother of tough-talking opposition political figure Abraham Darius Dillion will remain behind the walls of the Monrovia Central Prison as Supreme Court justice in chambers, Justice Joseph Nagbe, granted the petition for a writ of certiorari. However, Justice in Chambers, Joseph Nagbe, says Judge Willie was in error and therefore overturned the ruling. On May 7, Judge Willie who presides over Criminal Court “A” ordered the release of Dillion on bail when he ruled into a motion filed by the Defense counsel. Justice Nagbe said state prosecutors provided evidence on the murder charge and Judge Willie should not have granted the motion to bail. The charge also revealed that the vicinity in which Defendant Dillon encountered the victim and two others are noted for a notorious crime.
