By R Joyclyn Wea
Former police Director Chris Massaquoi appears to be ‘untouchable’ as police had been allegedly asked by invisible hands to keep a distance or not to comment on investigation of the former police boss over his alleged involvement in the gruesome murder of fallen Liberian journalist, Tyron Brown.
Former LNP Boss, Chris Massaquoi
During the arrest of prime suspect Jonathan Williams and his associates, it was alleged that prime suspect Williams disclosed to police investigation that the former Police Director Chris Massaquoi was allegedly informed by suspect Williams following the murder of journalist Tyron Brown, something which led to Massaquoi being investigated by the LNP.
When Massaquoi was allegedly undergoing police investigation, police spokesman Moses Carter promised to inform the public regarding the investigation of the former police boss, something which had not been done up to present.
Responding to question surrounding former Director Massaquoi investigation, Carter said they at the level of the LNP were advised not to comment on anything relating to the investigation of Massaquoi and that anyone wanting to know should go to the court.
Police spokesman Moses Carter promised at the initial stage of the matter to inform the public about updates surrounding the investigation of Ex- Director Massaquoi during interviews with reporters at his LNP office on Capitol Hill.
Carter who did not state where the advice came from or those behind the warning mentioned that the case is no longer under police jurisdiction as it has been taken to court.
“So, we have been advised not to comment on anything as it relates to this issue; whatever you guys want to finds out you can better get that information from the court,” the Police spokesman indicated.
Though Carter alleged that they at the level of LNP were advised not to comment on the matter, he equally confirmed that Massaquoi was not charged by the police, but rather treated him as person of interest in which Massaquoi cooperated and that the police saw no reason to charge him (Massaquoi).
It was speculated in the public that the police covered up Chris Massaquoi, but Carter stated that at no time did the police cover former Director Massaquoi saying “he was not covered up as speculated by some members of the general public.”
