KAKATA, Dec 10 (LINA) – The Founder and Executive Director of the Youth Exploring Solutions (YES), Stephen Lavelah has recommended  the strengthening of the justice system in order to effectively fight corruption in the country.

He observed that every sector of the Liberian society is permeated with corruption, and emphasized that to curtail corruption the justice system must be strengthened to bring culprits to book.

Mr. Lavelah made the observation Monday in Kakata. Margibi County when he delivered the keynote address at this year’s International Anti-Corruption Day.

He took a swipe at opposition political parties who, he said, criticize the Government for corruption but have failed to publish reports of monies they raise and spend during elections and other political activities.

Lavelah said Liberians must strive to stop corruption themselves, rather than look up to outsiders, adding, “This can be done at the individual, collective and at the national levels.”

This year’s celebration was held at the Nancy B. Doe Stadium in Kakata, Margibi County under the international theme: “Against Corruption Today, Corruption, Your No Counts”.
