The Commander-In-Chief of the Economic Freedom Fighters of Liberia, Emmanuel Gonquoi is calling for the arrest of ex-Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf whose son, Charles Sirleaf deputy governor of the Central Bank of Liberia along with two others picked up by state security early this week for their alleged involvement in the missing millions at the bank.
They were detained just hours after independent US investigators dismissed rumors that a haul of newly-printed cash that should have been put in the national reserves had gone missing, with the Kroll Associates, raising concerns “regarding the overall accuracy and completeness” of the bank’s internal records and found evidence of “systemic and procedural weaknesses”.
Speaking in an exclusive interview the Correspondent of DW, a German based news outlet, Mr. Gonquoi said the arrest of the son of the ex-Liberian president in his own words is ‘Scapegoating’ instead of arresting his mother who he alleged was at the helm of power during the alleged missing bank note.
“The former Liberian president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf should be called in by the state security to give answers to the alleged missing money instead of having her son arrested,” Gonquoi speaking to the DW stressed.
Charles Sirleaf, former deputy bank governor, and Dorbor Hagba, director of banking at the Central Bank of Liberia, were arrested this week in connection with reports released on the new bank notes saga.
