Mr. Henry Costa of the Costa Show has been temporarily released on bail. Mr. Costa was released after his team of lawyers secured a bond of an undisclosed amount on 24 March 2014.

Mr. Costa was placed behind bars at the Monrovia Central Prison on March 21, 2014 after his team of lawyers could not secure a bond for his release. Mr. Costa has been charged with terroristic threats, menacing and criminal coercion.

Expressing words of gratitude, Costa thanked his supporters for all the support adding that he will not cower into submission.

“My brothers and sisters, I thank you very much from the bottom of my heart, for the support that you showed me,” he said. Continued Costa: “It has not been an easy thing, but to know that you stand with us matters more than anything else. It has given me and us a renewed conviction that what indeed we are doing has a purpose because it is appreciated by you, you gave your time, you were in the sun, you were out there for us and I am just overwhelmed, what I have seen has given me the conviction that indeed the majority of the people of this country means good.”
 
In the meantime, the case continues at the Monrovia City Court and Mr. Costa  is to appear at every hearing with his lawyers.
