Pres. Sirleaf Accepts PPCC Board Chair’s Resignation

MONROVIA, January 18 (LINA) – President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has accepted the resignation of the Board Chairman of the Public Procurement
and Concessions Commission (PPCC), Professor Willie Belleh.

According to a PPCC press release issued in Monrovia on Tuesday, President Sirleaf took the decision to allow the PPCC official answer to charges levied against him for his alleged role in the Sable Mining corruption scam as claimed in a Global Witness.

Prof. Belleh, who is currently on post-surgery consultations in the United States, has been included in the second batch of persons indicted for their alleged roles in the Sable Mining bribery saga by the Special Presidential Task Force probing the Global Witness report.

The release disclosed that in August 2016 and January 2017, Mr. Belleh offered to voluntarily and temporarily step aside as Chairman of the PPCC Board of Commissioners to allow him face the Task Force to prove his innocence.

The release called on the Taskforce and the courts to expeditiously give Prof. Belleh due process so that he will have the opportunity to defend himself.

The Vice Chairperson of the Commission, Mrs. Esther Paegar, will handle the affairs of the Commission pending the appointment of a new chairperson, the release said.

Meanwhile, the Commission has assured all institutions and the public that it will continue to effectively and efficiently discharge its mandate in the interest of the Liberian people.
