LACC Boss Vows to Go After Corrupt State Actors

Amid report that suspended Buchanan Port Manager Charles McArthur Gull has left the country, the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission vows to exert every effort to have him returned to the country, if the information is true.

Addressing a news conference Monday in Monrovia, LACC Chairperson Cllr. Edwin Martins said that with strong support from the United States government, they will do everything in their power to have Gull returned to the country, so as to have him undergo investigation.

He said the LACC is not sleeping on corrupt state actors within the country, while revealing that they currently have four government institution heads undergoing investigation.

The LACC boss named the National Transit Authority boss Herbie McCaulay, Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation boss, Duwana Kamara, the former Managing Director of the Robert International Airport, Bishop Allan Krayee and Buchanan Port Manager Charles McArthur Gull respectively.

In a related development, the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission boss has announced September 1, 2021 as the deadline to have every public official declared their assets.

He maintains that since the pronouncement was made, the total of 59 persons, representing 16% females and 84 percent males, have voluntarily declared their assets.

Cllr. Martins further said the extension is due to the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, noting that the Commission anticipates that all public officials will adhere to the timeframe.
