  • The government through the Justice Ministry, in collaboration with LACC should ensure that all those mentioned should have their day in court .
    Extradition for those overseas n speedy arraignment for those on the ground should be a matter of urgency n priority for the government.

  • The process being instituted to prosecute alleged corrupt Liberian government officials is a fiasco (mouth-talk). It is a fiasco because President Weah himself is very corrupt and does not believe in the rule of law. If he is really serious about bringing corrupt Liberian government officials to justice, he President Weah himself should tell the Liberian people in writing, how he got money to build those estates. President Weah does have the moral authority to prosecute anyone for breaking the laws of Liberia because he himself is a law breaker. Mr. George Weah should step down from the office of the President of Liberia.

      It’s not the president doing the prosecuting. It’s the minister of Justice. If he find the president to be corrupt, I’m sure he’ll include the president. We have to acknowledge that this the beginning of moving in the right direction. I have seen that many charged with corruption in our nation’s history. Bravo to the minister of justice.

        Sharpe Malekebu, you must be another fool and a blind loyalist! Is there any better reason to why former president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is not on this list of corrupt officials? Witch hunting will always hurt our democracy and deray our developmental agenda! Even if one must not and can never wish to incriminate himself/herself, President Weah is a well known corrupt president and a criminal facilitator. He too must had been listed…, if we are to take this report seriously.

      Stop this crab menh. You are those same people crying about corruption engulfing the state apparatus and won’t support an attempt for any family members or friends to be prosecuted. You and others need to graduate beyond lineage attachment and safe the state from criminals. If as you claim you need information on the President property, that is the job of the GAC and the MoJ. Please make a formal request to these instructions as a concern citizens.

  • If this criminally corrupt government is serious it must create an economic crime court immediately with not more than a five and less than three judge panel to hear the cases. This court must be adequately staff with competent staff including but not limited to auditors, forensic accountants and economists.

  • Correction: In my first post, the sentence about moral authority should be, “President Weah does ‘NOT’ have the moral authority to prosecute anyone for breaking the laws of Liberia because he himself is a law breaker.”

  • This is another cliche organized by SG Cephus to siphon states resources. When last has he rescue public funds. Are they not the very people who dropped charges against Ellen Cockron and as well celebrated her return to Liberia as if she’s a mesiah? What has he in particular done about both our 16 billions and 25 millions purportedly used for the mop up exercise? These guys are jokers and it’s sad for Musa Dean to be associated with them. Because this is another avenue created to unnecessarily allot public resources that will end up in individual’s pockets instead. Let them know now that we are more aware of their trikes than they think.

  • This list reminds me of the decision making rule that is called “80/20,”
    It means that, the 80% outcome only comes from 20% in put. From Liberian context, the entire contry is corrupt including the president but only 20% is being alleged.
    Such a funny Republic!

  • I am greatly disappointed in Liberians who always back bad behavior of public officials. Let’s agreed that this will not gain any results. But I am convinced that the time frame mentioned by these financial experts will continue to the present officials if we can appreciate this move, support it to yield fruitful results, them we sure those in power will face similar process if they are audited for the period they will serve. We must stay from somewhere to go on make this country better.
