S Leone officials must reveal all

2010-10-04 14:28
Freetown - Four Sierra Leone officials disclosed their assets on the orders of the high court at the weekend but others have yet to comply, the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) said on Monday.

The Commission said the court made the order last Friday for Lands Minister Dennis Sandi, his deputy Sylvester Goba, Deputy Employment Minister Moijueh Kaikai and leader of the opposition Momoh Pujeh.

Told to declare their assets, income and liabilities to the commission within 48 hours, the four complied on Saturday," the commission said.

Those still holding out include Minister of State in the Vice President's Office Komba Mondeh and Member of Parliament Murray Kamanda.

The 2008 Anti Corruption Act obliged every public official to give the ACC a sworn declaration of income, assets and liabilities within three months of assuming office.

Failure to comply is punishable by a fine of up to $5 000 and/or a year's imprisonment.
