Former Finance Minister Reacts To Criminal Indictment


Former Finance Minister, Dr. James F. Kollie, one of the many names mentioned in the Ministry of Justice’s June 19 Press Statement as ‘persons of interest’ has sharply reacted.

Dr. Kollie, through a communication to the Solicitor General Designate, inquired on what basis was his name mentioned on any Audit Report from the period of July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2017.

“Cllr. Cephas, I am constrained to ask these questions because to the best of my knowledge, no auditor have ever asked me any question about EU $13 million and so for your press statement to claim that there is a GAC Audit Report is totally surprising and baffling,” says Dr. Kollie.

Meanwhile, Senator Alphonso Gaye has described the GAC Reports as a ‘non-validated reports that cannot be used as an instrument for indictment.’

The Grand Gedeh County Senator, through a communication addressed to the President Pro Tempore, stressed that GAC report that is not validated by the Legislature cannot be used as indictment of anybody; be it former or current government officials.


  1. Liberia’s political witch-hunt system knows the tactic of crucifying good minds. What happened to the World Crime Court which should have been established; are we prosecuting now from a list present by one party system targeting the former; have we forgotten the road we took in the 1980’s?
