IAA Deputy Director General Robert Neal Claims turn bitter as State prosecutor to go after him


Monrovia, Liberia – The Solicitor General of the Republic of Liberia, Cllr. Sayma Syrenius Cephus has announced government’s preparedness to arrest and prosecute Mr. Robert Neal, Deputy Director General for Audit at the Internal Audit Agency, should he fail to submit to police investigation at the close of Friday, March 27, 2020. 

 

According to Cllr. Cephus, Mr. Neal risks prosecution for criminal malevolence if he fails to turn himself in for police investigation into claims of corruption and abuse of public resources which he earlier made against the Internal Audit Agency and its Director General, Hon. Emmanuel B. Nyeswa.

 

It can be recalled that the IAA’s Deputy Director General for Audit, Robert Neal has been consistently using the traditional and social media to spread allegations ranging from payroll paddling, non-compliance to PPCC regulations, conflict of interest, among others against the Internal Audit Agency and its Director General, Emmanuel B. Nyeswa. 

 

But speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 in Monrovia, Liberia’s Chief Prosecutor informed the public that since Mr. Neal complained to his office about a month ago, the complainant, Mr. Neal has reneged on availing himself for police investigation; something which Cllr. Cephus described as unfortunate. 

 

Cllr. Cephus told newsmen that as a result of Neal’s refusal to comply with the investigation, he was constrained to issue an ultimatum, which expires on Friday of this week, for the complainant’s submission to the investigation. 

 

He noted that prosecution begins with police investigation; as such, when one alleges that a crime has been, or is being committed, such person is under legal obligation to cooperate with the police to gather the needed evidence that will inform an indictment. 

 

On the contrary, Cllr. Cephus indicated that Mr. Neal, rather than providing the pieces of evidence to enable the state review said pieces of evidence to determine whether or not to proceed with indictment, Mr. Neal has chosen to avoid the police which further undermines the entire investigation. 

 

The Country’s chief prosecutor is further cautioning the IAA’s Deputy for Audit to do the honorable thing by submitting to the police to support his claims with the necessary evidence, citing that free lies will not be misconstrued for free speech under the presidency of Dr. George M. Weah.

According to him, allegation without substantiation is a violation against the law, something he noted Mr. Neal will face the raft of the law if he doesn’t comply before Friday.
