Credible information gathered from the National Police Headquarters on Capitol Hill says the hierarchy of the police last Thursday held an hour-long discussion with Abigail Hinneh, the woman who claims to have been with Attorney Michael Allison prior to his mysterious drowning.The source described the meeting as the “first time” for Ms. Hinneh to be invited by top officials of the LNP.It is not clear what caused the leadership of the police to meet with Hinneh, whom police claimed was not a suspect.But, according to a police source, Hinneh appeared before the police leadership without being represented by a legal team.The source further explained that when she first appeared before the police’s “Crime against Persons Unit,” she went along with an unidentified lawyer.A source from Ms. Hinneh’s legal team confirmed the invitation and added that it was the first time she was invited by the hierarchy of the LNP, making specific reference to the head of the Criminal Investigation Division (CID).“She was invited by the LNP authorities, but before I could get there, she had left. I know that she went there as part of her daily routine of the investigation,” a source from her defense team said, adding, “but, the different thing was that she met with the CID boss, instead of the Crime against Persons unit.”Interestingly, when Ms. Hinneh first appeared before the Crime Against Persons Unit to give account of the death of Atty. Allison, she was quoted as saying, “after few minutes, she saw her boyfriend (Cllr. Allison) drowning, and she cried out for help and the security next door came to her aid and called a Brazilian national with a speed boat to get the victim out of the water, which he did, but Allison did not survive.”The late Cllr. Allison was the one who reportedly blew the whistle that has led to an ongoing corruption investigation by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) involving Speaker J. Alex Tyler of the House of Representatives, and Montserrado County Representative Adolph Lawrence.Allison was found dead on a beach in Sinkor on the outskirts of Monrovia during the morning hours of Friday, February 13.An autopsy has reportedly been conducted by a Sierra Leonean Pathologist, Dr. Simeon Owizz Koroma, and findings submitted to the Ministry of Justice have to date not been made public.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
