MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency says its fight against drug trafficking is been hampered by the lack of strong drug laws.

LDEA Deputy Director General for Operations, Marvin Sackor, said suspects arrested are usually billed out by their Lawyers at the courts.

Sackor said because drug offenses are billable under the laws of Liberia, many suspected traffickers often use money to go with impunity.

Speaking to ELBC Wednesday, September 6, 2018, the Deputy DEA Chief said since June, they have arrested 350 thousand United States Dollars’ worth of drugs from across the Country.

He said the DEA has put together a new legislation seeking amendment to the current drug laws making drug offenses non-billable.
