Civil Law Court Certificates PATEL Chairman

Judge Scheaplor Dubar  issued a Clerk Certificate to PATEL Head Tenwah on Wednesday December 13, 2017, indicating that due diligent inspections of the case filed in the recent action for Declaratory Judgment, reveals that since the ruling on the motion for Declaratory Judgment was filed on November 23, 2017, his contenders have failed to file their Bill of Exception up to present, including the date of the issuance of this Clerk Certificate.

Predicated upon that, the Judge is left with no option since they have decided not to perfect their appeal as announced in November.

Before the ruling for Declaratory Judgment, Mr. Presley S. Tenwah filed a six- count Petition for Declaratory Judgment against some of his colleagues who contested his leadership to include Kebbeh Collins, Patience F. Dean, Alexander C. Wento and George W. Mumakeh incorporators of the Patriotic Entrepreneurs of Liberia Incorporated (PATEL).

The legal battle ended with the Judge ruling in Tenwah’s favor, indicating that he  has not violated any provision of the corporation as claimed by  those who claimed to be  executive members of the organization.

The Judge proved  Tenwah’s legitimacy by citing Article V (b) of the Union’s Article of Incorporation, stating that: “The board shall not make policy (ies) to remove the incorporators, the registered agent or the present chairman from the management of the union for any reason. The union shall always be headed by the incorporator. The board of directors shall not take any action that will take away any of the powers/authorities granted the incorporator or his designated representative(s) of these articles of incorporation.”

In respect to the second issue, the Judge said Article V (b) clearly prohibits the board from making any policy to remove the incorporators, registered agent or the present chairman from the management of the union for any reason. “It also states that the union shall always be headed by the incorporator, and that the board of directors shall not take any action that will take away any of the powers and or authorities granted the incorporated,” the Judge noted.
