Pro-Tempore Findley Wants Cockrum Reply To Allegations

Winnie T. Dixon, Intern

MONROVIA, July 8 (LINA) - The President Pro-Tempore of the Liberian Senate, M. Gbehzongar Findley, has called on former Roberts International Airport (RIA) Managing Director, Ellen Cockrum, to respond to the corruption charges levied against her, rather than concentrate on the release of audio recordings.

Speaking at his regular press briefing last weekend at the Capitol Building, Findley observed that the release of the tapes by Cockrum could be a diversionary tactic, if she does not respond to the charges against her.

The Senate Pro-Tempore wondered why Cockrum, who claims to care so much for the country, would delay in answering the simple question of whether or not she stole the Liberian people’s money during her time in office.

The government has filed three-count extradition charges against the former RIA boss at the Justice Department in the United States of America.

She is accused of engaging in corrupt practices during her tenure in office, including her failure to account for US $19,000 for the purchase of computers and paying into the account of her fiancé, Melvin Johnson, an amount of US$57,000.
