An independent Investigation done by this site has established that the Liberia National Police is alledgedly refusing to return the laptop of former LFA Secretary General, Emmanuel Deah.
It can be recalled, On January 2, 2019, the Liberia Football Association in a communication addressed to the Deputy Inspector General for crime services department, Prince Mulbah ask him to investigate the mysterious disappearance of two hundred thousand United States dollars from CAF intended for football development. The communication dated January 2, 2019 under the signature of LFA Secretary General, Isaac Montgomery which a copy is in possession of this site particularly pointed to emails exchanges between the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and former LFA secretary General, Emmanuel Deah.“We would highly appreciate you to contact the General Secretary (Emmanuel Deah) relative to this complaint,” the communiqué emphasized.
It was on the basis of this request that the LNP invited the Secretary General Emmanuel Deah and seized his HP laptop valued over one thousand United states dollars to probe the purported email exchanges between his office and the confederation of African Football, CAF.However, on June 17, 2020, the football house informed the Liberia National Police to officially close the investigation after CAF took responsibility and refunded the missing money.
Though the case has officially been closed, Sports Day Liberia understands that the Liberia National Police is yet to return former Secretary General personal laptop that was confiscated for the investigation in January 2019.Our source closed to the LNP revealed that despite frantic efforts by the lawyer of the former Secretary General, the police is allegedly refusing to give account about the confiscated laptop.Our informer asserted that all efforts by lawyers of the former LFA Secretary General to retrieve the laptop has proven futile thus leaving them with no other alternative but to seek redress through the court.
Meanwhile, when contacted, Police Spokesman Moses Carter acknowledged the police seizing the laptop during the investigation but was informed that the item has ever since been given to the owner, an allegation Deah vehemently rejected the while he threatens a lawsuit.However, our investigation continues into this matter.
