Gbarpolu Price Inspector Warns Profiteers

By: Emmanuel Mondaye, LINA Gbarpolu County Correspondent

BOPOLU, August 24 (LINA) - Gbarpolu County Commerce Inspector, Aaron F. Mulbah, has warned businesses in the county against arbitrary price hiking in the face of the Ebola pandemic.

Mulbah told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) recently that during an inspection tour in the county he observed that some businesses were hiking the prices of basic commodities in violation of the business law of Liberia.

Although Mulbah did not identify the businesses involved, he vowed to shutdown any business caught hiking prices and turn it over to the Ministry of Justice for prosecution.

In another development, Gbarpolu County Superintendent, Allen Gbowee, has ordered security forces in the county not to permit any commercial vehicle to leave the county.

Gbowee said his directive comes in the wake of flagrant disrespect to his office by the Federation of Road Transport Union of Liberia (FRTUL) which refused to honor a meeting with county authorities over transport fares.

The Gbarpolu Superintendent also said that his mandate will remain in force until the leadership of the FRTUL complies with his directive.

He since the government imposed the curfew some commercial drivers in the county were overcharging passengers when the government has not increased the transport fares in rural Liberia.
