Man, 38, Charged For Misapplying US$5.8k Visa Funds
By Comfort M. Johnson

MONROVIA January 31 (LINA) – Thirty-eight-year-old Dalus George has been arrested and charged with “Theft of Property” for allegedly misapplying US$5,800 intended to process three visas.

According to the Police charge sheet, the act is in violation of the New Penal Law of Liberia.

George is an ex-Executive Protection Service (EPS) officer who also served as protocol officer for Robert Sirleaf, a position he held until he was dismissed from the EPS.

In his voluntary statement, he disclosed that while serving as Sirleaf’s protocol officer, he established relationships with the Consular Sections at various embassies to process traveling documents, which he continued to do even after his dismissal.

According to complainants Kumba Peters and Dehkontee M. Suah, the amount was given by Henry Prince Gbeway to be presented to George to process visas for his children.

They narrated that the money was later given to Dickson T. Borbor, brother of Kumba Peters, for delivery to George who, they claimed, did not complete the process until he reportedly left for study in China.

The Police charge sheet, however, quotes George as insisting that he fulfilled the agreements between him and Borbor and left the documents with a friend, giving him Borbor’s contact for delivery.

He confirmed receiving from Borbor US$2,400, instead of US$5,800.

Police found out that after defendant George received the amount he diverted it to his personal use, depriving the owners of the required services.

The charge sheet further revealed that George has been in hiding since February 2016, and did not tell the complainants about his travel to China but rather absconded without the knowledge of the complainants.
