Activists Threaten Lawsuit Against Three Bong Officials
Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, September 18 (LINA) - Two civil society activists in Bong County are calling on the County Attorney Colliniaus Wennah to prevail on the Justice Ministry to speed up ongoing probe into a complaint filed against three officials of the county.

Aaron Juakollie and Jesse Cole recently wrote County Attorney Wennah to investigate Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy, Development Superintendent Anthony Sheriff and the Project Management Committee Chair, Lawrence Plator, for using US$250,000 from the county’s Social Development Fund.

The county administration in May this year reported that it used the money to implement projects during the Ebola crisis; something Juakollie and Cole say contravenes Section 19 of the 2013/ 2014 Budget Law.

They have vowed to file a lawsuit against the officials if nothing is done to fast-track hearing into the complaint.

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Gbarnga recently, Juakollie and Cole said instead of appearing before the county attorney for preliminary hearing, the three officials wrote a communication asking the Attorney to seek the endorsement of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

In the communication, Superintendent Mappy and her Assistant Sheriff said they are commissioned officials and as such any issue emanating from the discharge of their duties must be channeled through the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

When contacted, Attorney Wennah acknowledged receipt of the communication and said it has been forwarded to the Ministry of Justice in Monrovia.
