The maverick magistrate, Mohamed Seray Wurie ordered his arrest on allegation that lawyer Iscandri had posted a demeaning statement on facebook about the legal profession in Sierra Leone.

Alieu was later released after his supporters took to social media and demanded his unconditional release.

He was said to have also apologized to the Magistrate.

This latest action by magistrate Seray Wurie, reinforces the negative perception held by many regarding his professionalism and abuse of power in the courtroom.
