Bao Chico Expatriate Worker Flogs Liberian Worker

By Emmanuel Mondaye, Gbarpolu County Correspondent

KORKPOR TOWN, GBARPOLU, March 5 (LINA) – Gbarpolu County Labor Commissioner Jackson Quiogbian has vowed to take drastic action against expatriate workers who flog and torture Liberian workers in their concession areas.

He said this could include prosecution and eventual deportation when found guilty by a court of law.

Commissioner Quiogbian made the statement during a probe into a complaint file by a Liberian national, working with the Bao Chico Mineral Exploration Company in Gbarpolu County, against a Chinese national for allegedly flogging him while they were at work in the forest.

The victim, Jusu Kallon, said he was flogged with a rubber pipe on the hands and stomach, inflicting serious bruises on his left and right hands. 

Kallon is currently undergoing treatment at the Bomi Hospital in Tubmanburg in Bomi County.

The matter was presided over by a joint investigative team comprising of the Superintendent of the county, Allen Gbowee, Labor Commissioner Jackson Quoigbian and the Commissioner of Bopolu, Olu Nangba.

When the investigators questioned the Chinese worker, he admitted that Kallon’s complaint was true, but explained that he was “only joking” with Kallon and did not mean to do him any harm.
