Police in Monrovia have charged Grand Gedeh County District #2 Representative Morias Waylee and his wife with multiple charges.
The charges include Criminal Conspiracy, Tampering with Witness, Tampering with Criminal Investigation and Kidnapping.
Representative Waylee was arrested by the Liberia National Police (LNP) last Thursday on allegation of raping a 13-year-old girl, who is believed to be his niece.
But the police said there is no evidence to charge the representative with rape. The lawmaker spent two nights in police custody before he was forwarded to Court on Saturday.
However, sources said defendant Waylee was released to his lawyers after filing criminal appearance bond.
Suspect Waylee is said to have tampered with relatives of the alleged rape victim including the mother, who could serve as witnesses during trial.
The 13-year-old girl was said to have gotten pregnant by the lawmaker’s alleged act.
The family has remained silent since the incident occurred and even those who want to tell the truth, are continuously suspicious of whom they are talking to.
