Speaker Tyler Clarifies Pres. Sirleaf Not Under Probe
MONROVIA, July 10 (LINA) – House Speaker J. Alexander Tyler has clarified that President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is not the subject of any Legislative probe.
Addressing various issues of national concern at his Capitol Building office on Wednesday, July 9, the Speaker explained that the House’s Joint Committee, which was recently set up, was mandated to ascertain the quantity of oil donated to Liberia as well as how the proceeds were expended.
“This is in keeping with our Legislative oversight function, and based on a letter submitted by two of our members. It is not based on any claims by a former President of the National Oil Company of Liberia,” Speaker Tyler said.
According to the Speaker, there are competent agencies of the government to undertake probes into graft.
He therefore encouraged everyone to demonstrate faith in these agencies by working with them in the continuous efforts of the Liberian Government to fight corruption.
