Mr. James CooperMonrovia – Liberian businessman James Cooper has termed as “lies’ news about him absconding the country as alleged by Senator Sando Johnson and popular talk show host, Henry Costa. Cooper, owner of Liberia’s only rubber processor based in Bomi County, has been embroiled in a dispute with the Bomi County Senator ever since he released a damaging tape on the lawmaker. In the recording, a purported voice of Senator Johnson can be heard seeking bribe from the businessman in order to push through a loan deal from government. The Liberian businessman also refuted allegations that he’s a domestic terrorist, telling reporters that the court dismissed the charge against him due to the lack of evidence. She alleges that after her invaluable contributions to building Cooper Rubber Plant, Cooper attempted to secure additional funding of US$7.2 million from LBDI without her knowledge and exclude her from all aspects of the business venture.
