Cherno Marena, a seasoned lawyer and one time solicitor General and legal secretary, has bounced back as Solicitor General at the Attorney General’s Chambers and Ministry of Justice.

Cherno Marena was reported to have assumed office as Solicitor General on Monday 8 May 2017 after he served in the same capacity almost a year ago

He was allegedly enmeshed on a trumped up charges involvement in the GNPC oil scam, prompting his removal by the former regime.

Marena started as state counsel in the early 2000 and rose through the ranks becoming the Registrar of Companies and the Solicitor General and legal Secretary in 2015.

Meanwhile, Saffie Sankareh, former Solicitor General, has been redeployed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
