Juli Endee Comes Back at Prophet Key
Capitol: Liberia’s longest-serving Culture Ambassador has taken Nayabougua Yeazeahn alias Prophet Key, a Liberian residing in the Arab Kingdom of Morocco for damages of libel and slander.
Amb. Juli Endee's action in a Monrovia Civil Law Court seeks $5 million in general damages, $300,000 in punitive damages, and $250,000.00 in successful attorney fees.
This suggests that Endee's case seeks a total of five million, five hundred fifty thousand dollars from Prophet Key for using his show to simply blackmail, humiliate, disparage, and tarnish the well-earned reputations of notable Liberians, including herself.
The Liberian based in Morocco hosts a discussion program on many social media platforms, including Facebook and TikTok.
Endee's damage action stated that, in December 2023, the defendant deliberately, intentionally, and purposefully engaged in a slanderous and libelous campaign to hurt, defame, embarrass, and humiliate Plaintiff in two (2) podcast videos uploaded on social media.
She claims that the Prophet Key not only made defamatory and derogatory statements about her but also labeled her as an indecent person who is involved in inappropriate relationships with high-profile figures such as jailed President Charles Taylor and President George Manneh Weah.
Endee further alleges that the defendant accused her of attempting to engage in an appropriate connection with Mr. Amos Tweh, Secretary-General of the Unity Party, to acquire a space in the Amb. Joseph Nyumah Boakai.
“Upon hearing from family relatives, friends, local and international partners and by Plaintiff's viewing of the video podcasts published by Defendant on his social media platforms, Plaintiff has made a frantic effort by communicating with the Minister of Justice, Cllr. Frank-Musa Dean, Jr., Minister of Justice & Attorney-General of the Republic of Liberia to include the United Nations Resident Coordinator to Liberia, the Delegation of the European Union in Liberia, the Embassy of the United States of America near Monrovia, the Association of Female Lawyers of Liberia (AFELL), the Press Union of Liberia, the Unity Party, and other government ministries and agencies about the constant attack against her person.”
Endee asserted that the video podcasts contained baseless claims in which Defendant claimed that Plaintiff had discouraged people from voting for President-elect Amb. Joseph Nyumah Boakai in the 2023 General and Presidential Elections.
Meanwhile, civil law court has issued a writ of summon to have defendant prophet appear before it, on March 18, to answer to the complaint filed against him by Madam Endee.
