Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission Chairperson Cllr. Edward Kla Martin

The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission has placed the entire leadership of the National elections Commission under full scale corruption investigation for the reported hiring of several pieces of thermometers costing around one hundred and eighty thousand United States Dollars.

The Commission said all the seven Commissioners and other senior executives of the NEC will begin making statements at the LACC from November 19, 2021.

A statement from the Commission quotes the Executive Chairperson as saying, the LACC was deeply concerned about the reports and it is determined to have an understanding of all elements of the transaction.

Earlier this week, it was widely reported that the National Elections Commission spent a whopping one hundred and eighty thousand United States Dollars ($180,000USD) to rent several pieces of thermometer for the conduct of By-Elections in four counties.
