Le155m fraud:


PDP complains AG office to British High Commission

SEPTEMBER 11, 2014 By Hassan Gbassay Koroma


Members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have, in a letter dated 8 September, 2014, complained the Office of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice and Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to the British High Commissioner, and copied the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), President Ernest Bai Koroma, Paramount Chiefs and the Inspector General of Police.

The complaint is in line with a vote of no-confidence passed on their leaders, Gibrilla Kamara, party leader; Prince Coker, Chairman; and Alhaji Ben Kamara, Deputy Secretary-General.

The letter stated that the aforementioned leaders were taken to the Criminal Investigation Department in respect of fraud and embezzlement of Le176 million.

According to the letter, the police arrested the three accused and investigated the matter and later promised that they would take the file to the Director of Public Prosecution for legal advise.

The letter stated that the DPP told them he knew nothing about the file when they approached him in his office.

Also, the petitioners said that they reminded the police about their petition and also called the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Frank Kargbo, on phone but nothing has been done about the issue, thus their decision to write to local and international dignitaries, including the President, to intervene in the protracted party dispute.
