The Chief Judge of the Commercial Court at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia has shut down the Metropolitan Plaza Hotel for failure to pay an amount of US$51,740 to the management of Global Bank-Liberia.
The Metropolitan Plaza Hotel is situated on Broad Street and operated by its Managing Director, A. N. Charifz.
The case, presided over by Judge Eva-Mappy Morgan, grew out of an action of debt by attachment.
The Writ of Execution was issued Thursday as a result of a final judgment rendered by the court against the defendant (management of Metropolitan Plaza Hotel) on November 3, 2013.
The Writ of Execution commanded Sheriff Nathaniel Gildersleeves to seize and expose for sale of the land, goods and chattels of the Management of Metropolitan Plaza Hotel.
The court order also stated that the property seized should be sufficient to raise the total sum of US$51,740 and warned that the defendant will be arrested if it fails to comply with the court order.
