The National Port Authority (NPA) has indefinitely suspended its Free-port Pier Supervisor, George McCay, regarding the sinking of the ship Niko Ivanka on Liberian waters.
NPA’s Director for Public Affairs, Malcolm Scott told a news conference Wednesday that McCay was suspended for allegedly ordering the sale of the Niko Ivanka Vessel without the authorization of the NPA’s Management.
Mr. Scott also said Suspect McCay has been forwarded to the Ministry of Justice for Prosecution.
According to him, one of the major aims of the NPA is to ensure that all regulations at the Port are adhered to and guarantee that the NPA as the gateway of the nation’s economy is safe at all times.
It can be recalled that on Saturday, July 17, 2021 the Niko Ivanka vessel was reported to be in distress in the waters in Maryland County while carrying about 21 passengers, including nine workers of the West African Examination Council (WAEC).
Meanwhile, Buchanan Port suspended manager Charles Gull and Statistician Amara Kamara have confessed that they created bogus accounts in which they remitted funds without NPA management’s consent.
According to NPA Director of Public Affairs, Malcolm Scott, the two men have pleaded for mercy, but the port as an institution will not compromise the interest of the state by accepting their plea for mercy.
Scott said at a press conference on Wednesday, NPA has delivered Charles Gull and Amara Kamara to Liberia
Anti Corruption Commission to investigate further.
