Massive outcry for Dumanski
Latest reports reaching this press state that there has been a massive outcry from well-meaning citizens, civil society organizations following widespread news that the two confiscated houses of Victor Dumanski are about to be sold for $450,000.
The two houses which cost $2 million were impounded after a high court ruling which dispossessed Dumanski of his bona fide property.
Dumanski would have to pay $450,000 if he wants to retain his property. The unpopular ruling has caused a hue and cry among many Sierra Leoneans who see it as a blatant manifestation of injustice.
A concerned citizen, in an interview, told this medium that there is nowhere in the world where an acre and two towns plot of land is sold for $450,000 as the Rekab Family wants Dumanski to re-buy the land on which his two confiscated houses are erected.
The concerned citizen continued that such naked injustice bears the highest potential to scare away potential investors.
In an exclusive interview with Victor Dumanski at his Hamilton village residence, he confirmed that his lawyer, Mr. Thorlie, informed him of their intention to resell the land to him for $450,000 for him to be able to repossess his two houses. He added that he explained to his solicitor that he has no money for now but will be willing to offer something if he can be allowed entry into the houses to see exactly and assess the damages done to the houses but that his request was turned down. “I want to see how much money is to be spent for repairs and to know how much people will be willing to offer if the houses are to be put on sale,” Dumanski stated.
He expressed regret that if it was in Ukraine or Russia, he would never have suffered such injustice nor would the president reject his request to see him.
He lamented that the court ruling has devastated him and that even though he has forwarded his case to the relevant authorities like the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC), the Minister of Lands, Hon Musa Tarawally, the Chief Justice, Hon Umu Hawa Tejan Jalloh, the Ombudsman, Hon Justice Edmond Cowan, the Minister of Political and Public Affairs, Hon Kemoh Sesay and the Attorney- General and Minister of Justice, Hon Franklyn Bai Kargbo, no action has been taken.
