I am not a criminal and will never be one…I-Café Boss

Friendly it’s a sad experience and I’m so disappointed that detractors, pay agents are able to perpetuate evil against law abiding, peaceful citizens in a nation like Liberia. Simply put, I’m being harassed and destroy by Presley Tenwah and his pay agents. The truth will come out in court and I will be vindicated of all charges of their evil conspiracy against me.

I was charged for Forgery, criminal coercion and harassment. Please note, there is a big difference from being charge for a crime and being guilty or sentenced for a crime. Those charges are base on false claims made up by Presley Tenwah to destroy my reputation.
