(, 7, 2015)-President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has ordered a full-scale investigation into the Japanese Counterpart Value Funds.

President Johnson-Sirleaf wants the investigation to include comprehensive audits of all seven projects supported by the Funds.

According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian Leader ordered the investigation, following receipt of preliminary report by Justice Minister, Benedict Sannoh.

Minister Sannoh said the Justice Ministry’s report reveals the slow pace in the projects’ implementation, and alleged financial improprieties.

She further mandated the General Auditing Commission to speedily conduct a comprehensive forensic audit of funds provided to finance the projects.

The intent of the audit and investigation is to identify and prosecute all those found culpable of any acts of improprieties.
