The case against Maxx Rental Incorporated, a car rental company manager and its chief accountant, Sanju Jose Thayankeril, an Indian national, and Lorena Reeves, a Liberian accused of US$124,730.75 theft started last week at Criminal Court ‘C’ in Monrovia.Both Thayankeril and Reeves have pleaded not guilty to the multiple-count indictment brought against them by the government when they were first arraigned in court.The parties (prosecution and defense teams) have already concluded with their final legal arguments into the matter and are therefore waiting for Judge Yussif Kaba to declare them either guilty or not.At last week’s hearing, Judge Kaba did not give a definite time when he would render his judgment.Thayankeril and Ms Reeves will serve prison terms between five to ten years and made to pay back the money, if found guilty.Between July 2015 and April 2016, the company’s chief executive officer (CEO), Emmanuel Togba, claimed that the defendants (Thayankeril and Reeves) used their respective positions to design a criminal scheme where they successfully prepared a fictitious vehicle rental request purporting same to be emanating from one of the company’s clients, the World Food Program (WFP).They were alleged to have used the request to raise a payment voucher for the US$124,730.75 and fraudulently transferred the money from the Maxx Rental bank account into their personal savings account for the period between July 2015 up to and including April 2016.Their alleged withdrawal was intended to ensure that the rental service was provided to the WFP, while in reality the UN entity made no such request, for which the defendants en-cashed the check and withdrew the money for their personal use and benefits.Before the withdrawal, Togba claimed that in June 2015, Thayankeril and his co-defendant (Reeves) encouraged him to join the company and served as its chief executive officer.When the deal was sealed, Togba alleged that the defendants issued to him a 35 percent share in the company and the CEO post, on condition that he made available the collateral to secure a loan from the GT Bank.It was based upon “the encouraging post (CEO),” that Togba allegedly used his seven bed-room story building, situated at the ELWA Rehab Road in Paynesville, as collateral for an amount of US$150,000 in the name of Maxx Rental Incorporated to the bank.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Sure, it’s been four months, but the Lakers still know all about the Phoenix Suns. The Lakers can see the Suns ahead in the distance, 12 games ahead of them in the Pacific Division standings going into today’s game in Phoenix. Today’s game is the first between the rivals since Oct. 31 at Staples Center, when the Lakers beat the Suns without Kobe Bryant, who was still recovering from offseason knee surgery. It’s also the Lakers’ first visit to Phoenix since the Suns eliminated them in Game 7 of their first-round playoff series last season, capping a rally from a three-games-to-one deficit. Little has changed since then. The Lakers are still the gritty underdogs, capable of raising the level of their game high enough to knock off teams like the Suns. Phoenix is still one of the teams to beat in the hyper-competitive Western Conference, capable of making better teams than the Lakers look silly with a relentless offensive attack orchestrated by two-time league MVP Steve Nash. ” It’s a huge challenge for us, matching up against the No. 1 offensive team in the league,” Bryant said Saturday. “We just have to be ready for it. It’s a nationally televised game (and) it’s important to start off the trip on a high note, and there’s no better place to do it than Phoenix.” After facing the Suns, the Lakers travel to Minnesota, Milwaukee and Philadelphia for their final trip of any length this season. New look Suns: There is one noteworthy difference this season in the Suns: center Amare Stoudemire has regained his edge after sitting out all but three games last season because of injuries. Stoudemire is averaging a team-leading 20.9 points. “His conditioning is back,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. “He can do all the things he wants to do out there again. What was he out? A year? Almost a year. He had to rebuild that stamina and strength. It takes a while.” Injury updates: Maurice Evans’ sore knee didn’t keep him from shooting baskets with his teammates, but Jackson couldn’t say whether the guard would play today against the Suns. Evans did not play Friday night. … Kwame Brown emerged unscathed after playing his first game Friday after sitting 27 because of a sprained ankle, according to Jackson. Brown did not score in 20 minutes, but had three rebounds and three assists. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
