Monrovia, Liberia – The President of Liberia, His Excellency Dr. George Manneh Weah has appointed His honor Judge Yussif Kaba as Associate Justice to the Supreme Court of Liberia.
According to an Executive Mansion release, Judge Kaba replaces the impeached former Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh.
Justice Kabineh Ja’neh was on Friday impeached from the bench of the Supreme Court of Liberia after 22 Senators voted in favor of his impeachment, a process which is still being criticized by the opposition.
Several legal luminaries including former Associate Justice Philip Z. Banks and the President of the Liberia National Bar Association Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe termed the impeachment proceeding as unconstitutional, citing constitutional errors.
Judge Kaba’s appointment is subject to confirmation according to the Executive Mansion release.
