MONROVIA-The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission, LACC wants Finance Development Planning Ministry turn over evidences and suspects involved in the U$82,000 case to the Commission for investigation.

LACC Executive Chairman, Jerome Verdier, said the anti-graft institution is clothed with the authority to investigate financial crimes in the country.

He said: “Investigating financial crime is out of the domain of Finance Ministry, and the Ministry must not determine what happens to the suspects involved.”

He made the comments on Friday, February 10, 2917 when he spoke to ELBC on the Super Morning Show.

Cllr. Verdier, however, praised the Ministry’s efforts to recover the missing funds from government’s coffers, but insisted that it is the LACC legal right to take appropriate actions in such matters.

He maintained that he wants to take full charge of the investigation process and subsequently forward the suspects to the Justice Ministry if they are found guilty.
