first_imgMadam Jamilah Sedee, a Liberian woman who has accused her ex-husband, Mohammed Sedee Falee, of kidnapping her three children in Mauritania in 2011, last week testified at Criminal Court ‘A’ at the Temple of Justice.Defendant Falee is being tried on charges of kidnapping and if he is convicted he could spend almost the rest of his life in prison. Interestingly he is on a bail.He was arrested in early 2014 in Gbarpulo County after the head of Interpol in Sierra Leone requested the Liberian government to do so and turn him over to that country to stand trial there.The request was rejected by Charles B. Blake, Deputy Commissioner of the Liberia National Police (LNP) and head of Interpol in Liberia.It was Comm. Blake’s refusal to extradite Falee that led to his indictment by the Grand Jury of Montserrado County, where he is currently standing trial.But, Madam Sedee’s testimony detailed how one of her ex-husband’s sons took them from Sierra Leone, where her children were schooling, to Mauritania, before the children were taken away from her by Falee.In her testimony, she alleged that one day as her family was enjoying their stay in Sierra Leone, one of her ex-husband’s children, whose name she did not mention, told her that he wanted to take them to Mauritania for a visit.According to her, when she refused to follow him with her children, he left and later came back after a month with the same request. “I said no again.”“When he came back for the second time,” she said, “he continued to talk to me about travelling and I said no.”At that point, she alleged, her ex-husband’s son asked her why she didn’t want to go. “I answered him that it was because my children were in school.” “I said I didn’t know the place and it was far away from my country, Liberia and I didn’t know anybody there,” she added.Madam Sedee quoted Falee and his son saying, “we were not going to stay but to go and see the family.”“So they promised me that after seeing the family I was going to come back, but what I started seeing was different from what they had earlier told me. “Not knowing they were deceiving me, they started manhandling my children while we were there and I told them that I didn’t like that.”She told the court that while they were in Mauritania, she received a call from her family in Guinea about the death of her father.“When I received the news from my brothers in Liberia about the death of our father, I left my ex-husband and the children and went for the burial in Guinea. Unfortunately, when I came back to Mauritania I could not see my children and their father anymore,” Madam Sedee told the court.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
