"Let Not Your Hearts Be Troubled"
(A Press Release Issued By Friends of Brumskine -USA)
As for the rest of the "writ", which proposes to overthrow the elected leadership of the Liberia Unification Party by judicial fiat, Chairman Isaac Manneh pointed out in an interview yesterday at party headquarters in Monrovia that the writ was simply a nuisance suit pulled out of the NPP's bag of dirty tricks. The lawyer who filed the writ is one Senator Francis Garlawolo, legal counsel for the NPP, who posted his personal residence as bond for the injunction. The so-called "founders of LUP" he represents have had no known affiliation with the party. The Elections Commission dating as far back as 1997 has recognized the current leadership of the Liberia Unification Party. The current Elections Commission knows and has dealt with only the leadership under Chairman Manneh.
Friends of Charles Brumskine would like to remind supporters and friends of Cllr. Brumskine that this is a minor incident in a series of anti-Brumskine shenanigans that the NPP led regime and its surrogates, both at home and abroad, will attempt to engage in, in order to derail Cllr. Brumskine's legitimate championship of the Liberian people. Ever since his triumphant return to Liberia, the people have become emboldened with hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Now the ruling elite and professional politicians would stop at nothing to kill the dream. We must brace ourselves for worse things to come, because after all else fails, they will result to violence. But let not your hearts be troubled.
