CPP Cummings Concern Over Attack At Home Of Former Chief Justice Scott
MONROVIA, Feb. 23 (LINA) – The Political leader of the Collaborating Political Party (CPP) Alexander B. Cummings has expressed concern over the recent attacks on the person, family and home of Cllr. Gloria Musa Scott, Former Chief Justice of Liberia.
Mr. Cummings has extended heartfelt condolences to Cllr. Scott and her family following the death of her daughter in the attack and indicated that he strongly condemned the situation.
“This attack last night was the third in a wave of reported attacks on the former Chief Justice’s home and family. All previous attempts were publicly reported,” he said in a statement released Thursday.
Mr. Cummings has alleged that the incidents are targeted if not orchestrated to intimidate and frighten the Liberian people, especially members of the opposition community.
He said “Lawlessness and violence are unacceptable threats to Liberia’s peace, security and democracy, adding, “Peace is not just the absence of gun sounds. It is ensuring a safe society for our people to live, grow and thrive.”
“No one will be permitted to get away with undermining our nation’s peace, democracy and security. There will be consequences for these actions, and or inactions. If not now, certainly, in the very near future,” Mr. Cumming cited.
On Wednesday, an alleged burglary occurred at the home of former Chief Justice Scott leading to the death of one of her daughters.
Authorities of the Liberia National Police have since confirmed reports of the incident at the Brewerville residence of the former Chief Justice and have commenced an immediate probe into the situation.
Madam Scott, who is now under appropriate police protection, according to the LNP, reported some days ago in a radio interview that her family had experienced several attempts from suspected burglars to enter her home at night.
