Four opposition collaborating political parties have threatened “unspecified mass actions across Liberia” if President George Weah fails to arrest Finance Minister Samuel Tweh and Central Bank governor Nathaniel Pitray for their connection to the financial scandals.
The call of the opposition community comes in the wake of two recently released reports to the public by the Presidential Investigative Team (PIT) and Kroll Associates Incorporated.
In its report, Kroll stated that requests made to the Central Bank of Liberia for documentation remain outstanding and that information provided by CBL during the review exercise were inaccurate and “incomplete”.
The group also indicated in the report that it discovered “discrepancies at every stage of the process for controlling the movement of banknotes into and out of the CBL”.
Addressing a news conference at ALP headquarters in Old Road, the coordinating chairperson of the collaboration Theodore Momo cautioned President Weah to show fairness in the matter and avoid shielding anyone linked directly to what he calls massive robbery and economic sabotage.
“Our move is deliberate and intended to prevent the governance situation from degenerating into a crisis of cataclysmic proportions” says Momo.
The Four opposition collaborating political parties meanwhile termed as “gross misrepresentation and a deliberate attempt to undermine justice and misinform the people of Liberia” statement attributed to President George Weah.
The Liberian leader upon his return to the Country from Israel, intoned his government has been vindicated by the Presidential Investigative Team and Kroll reports in the reported missing billions of Liberian dollars and the 25 million United States dollars mop-up exercise.
The parties including Alternative National Congress, All Liberian Party, Liberty Party and former ruling Unity Party at a news conference said they hold the view that the former and current governments are culpable in what they call a shameless looting of public funds.
The recently married parties are demanding a speedy trial of former and current government officials who may be culpable as per the kroll and PIT investigations.
Addressing scores of Journalists on Wednesday, Theodore Momo called on Liberians to remain resolved and take concrete steps in protecting the integrity of the State and as well hold government accountable to the people.
Momo concluded by urging President Weah to obey the oath of affirmation to defend, protect and uphold the Constitution and laws of our country and immediately halt his infamous practice of allegedly continuously violating and undermining the constitution and laws of Liberia.
