Ex-CBL Boss Speaks Heart Out Following Acquittal Verdict Featured

Monrovia, Liberia - The former Governor of the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL), Mr. Milton Weeks, has called on the Government of Liberia (GoL) to go back and investigate those people who said L$16 billion was printed and got missing.

Speaking in an interview reporters following an acquitted verdict, former Governor Weeks said the GoL needs to find out where the money for which they were accused of, is actually is.

Counts 13 and 15 of the indictment charged Milton Weeks, Tamba Kollie, David Farhat, Melissa A. Emeh and Elise Dossen Badio the crimes of illegal disbursement of public money, Criminal Conspiracy and Theft of Property for allegedly printing in excess of L$2.6 billion.

However, having been set free by the court on Tuesday, August 25, 2020, Weeks asserted that it’s now time for the government to look for the real criminal.

"Ask the Minister of Information, Len Nagbe. He was the first person who said 16 billion was printed in China, South Africa and other countries. Where did he get that kind of information from? He said investigation established that so which Investigation is he talking about?"He asked.

He expressed serious disappointment in the Liberian government for wasting two years of his life after given services to the country.

“For over 30 years working in the banking sector around the world, coming back to Liberia and not only back in the country but to serve the country, is this how the government supposed to be treat me? This is unfair,” the former CBL executive governor regretted.

Weeks added that the government has made so many fake allegations against him, reiterating: “It was just unfortunate that two years of my life have been spent trying to prove my innocence.”

While taking issue with the executive, Weeks lauded the judicial system for standing up and doing the right thing. Additionally, Cllr. Abraham Sillah, who served as Weeks’ legal counsel, said this was a blamed game and that game has now ended with his client.

He lauded the judge for having the courage to serve Justice.

"If we have many Judges of this kind in this country,then this country will be better than what it is today," the Liberian lawyer added.
