(LINA) -The Special Presidential Task Force currently probing the Global Witness report that alleges bribery among past and current government officials, Wednesday dispatched a five-man delegation to London to gather more evidence.

The team is headed by Cllr. Darku Mulbah, Chief Prosecutor of the task force.

A press release from the Ministry of State quotes the Minister of State without Portfolio and Chair of the Special Presidential Task Force, Cllr. Jonathan Koffa, as saying that while in London, the delegation will hold discussions with British authorities, witnesses and officials of Global Witness (GW) on the ongoing case.

Meanwhile, the Task Force Chair also departed the country Wednesday to hold discussions with Liberian lawyers residing in the United States on asset recovery issues.

He explained that these discussions would be focused on how the government can be able to recover some of the assets and funds that have been allegedly siphoned by Liberians currently residing in the U.S.

“These trips are all in the interest of the country. Like we promised our Liberian people, we are not going to leave any stone unturned in the pursuit of this case, and our quest to uphold the President’s promise in fighting corruption in Liberia,” Koffa stated prior to his departure from the country.
