ACC impounds truck loaded with fish, suspect in custody

September 13, 2016 By Ibrahim Tarawallie

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has in collaboration with the Sierra Leone Police, the Office of National Security (ONS) and the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources intercepted and impounded a truck loaded with cartoons of fish.

The commission stated that one of the suspects, Ibrahim Sorie Kamara was in custody assisting the ACC with the investigation and assured that updates on development would be made to the public in due course.

According to a press release from the ACC, the truck with registration No RC-3341-AB was intercepted last Thursday (September 8, 2016) at the Gbalamuya checkpoint in the Kambia district.

The impounded IVECO truck contains five hundred and twenty seven (527) cartoons of assorted frozen fish which was en-route to the Republic of Guinea illicitly.

The government of Sierra Leone had placed a moratorium on the export of fish from the country because of its current scarcity in the market.

The move gave the ACC and its partners the chance to heighten vigilance across the country, which led to the interception of the truck.

“It is also believed that the owners of the consignment made false declarations to the Customs post at the Sierra Leone/Guinean border. The truck also had no health certificate, and export permits from the Ministries of Fisheries and Trade and Industry,” the release stated.

The ACC expressed its undeterred determination and commitment to rid the country of corruption.
