…Opens Escrow Account For Milad Hage’s Estate

The Attorney-In-Fact of Nohad Hage Mensah in the Estate of the late Milad R. Hage, Mrs. Edith Hage-Smith has showered praises on the assigned Judge of the Monthly and Probate Court for Montserrado County, Judge Eva Mappy-Morgan for the impartial manner she continues to adjudicate cases as the court give rights to people who are victims of justice.

Speaking to a team of reporters in the vicinity of the Temple of Justice recently, Mrs. Hage-Smith, the mother of the first Liberian daughter of the late Milad R. Hage, said Judge Morgan’s professional manner of handling cases, especially the fair judgment she gave as a result of a Bail of Information filed to the court by Nahad Hage Mensah recently appointed to assist in conducting the affairs of her late father, Milad R. Hage Estate, demonstrates the outcome of true interest of people attached to a particular profession and also that the Liberian Justice system is certainly getting better.

It is recalled that Nohad Hage Mensah informed the Court through a Bail of Information that she is not a child as she is being presented to the Court by Ms. Oumou Sirleaf who had wickedly being claiming motherhood of her (Nohad) and presented her to the court as a minor when in fact she is an adult.

As the first Liberian daughter of the late Mr. Milad R. Hage, Nohad Hage Mensah was a 24-year old adult and married when her father died in 2010.

“The Judge rendered a fair decision by including Nohad as one of the administrator of her late father estate. Oumou had been misleading the Liberian people through all kinds of tricks presenting my daughter as her child and a minor when in fact she was an adult and the first Liberian daughter of the late Mr. Hage.”, intoned Mrs. Edith Hage-Smith as she celebrated the decision of the court.

Judge Morgan in her ruling following the submission of a Bail of information to the monthly and probate Court by the first Liberian daughter, Nohad Hage Mensah for inclusion as one of the administrators of the said estate as she is not a child rather an adult and that Oumou is not her mother, ruled in her favor and appointed her (Nohad) to assist in conducting the affairs of her late father Milad R. Hage estate.

Judge Morgan, in her ruling further reconstituted the administration of the said estate to include the Curator of the Court, Ms. Oumou and Mrs. Nohad Hage Mensah.

Judge Morgan also ordered all tenants of the late Milad R. Hage estate to deposit all rental proceeds or any money due the aforementioned estate into an escrow account established by the Probate Court at the Liberian Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI) under account title: Monthly and Probate Court, L.T.F. Milad R. Hage estate account.
Judge Morgan has warned all tenants of the Milad R. Hage estate to desist from making direct payment to those appointed as administers including Oumou Sirleaf, the Curator and Mrs. Nohad Hage Mensah, recently appointed to assist in conducting the affairs of her late father, Milad R. Hage Estate.
