Liberia: Justice Ministry Returns Conflict of Interest Case to LACC- Cites Commission’s Oversight On Corruption Issues Featured

The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission(LACC) says the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has returned a case involving its Vice Chairperson Cllr. Kanio Bai Gbala over allegations conflict of interest.

The Commission, in a statement, said Ministry of Justice citing part of the LACC Act informed the country’s anti-graft office that it has full responsibility and jurisdiction over the matter.

The Commission said its decision to inform the public about the return of the case is based on the desire of the LACC to remain transparent both from the beginning straight to the end of the investigation.

The LACC says it will inform the public in subsequent time about the next course of action.

It can be recalled that few weeks ago, the Executive Chairperson of the LACC Cllr. Edwin Kla Martin, in a letter to Justice Minister Cllr. Frank Musa Dean requested the Attorney General to take seize of the matter involving the Vice Chairperson of the Commission to avoid public perception that the LACC is conflicted by investigating its own member.
