MONROVIA, LIBERIA - The Executive Director of the Regional Human Rights Watch has welcomed President George Weah’s mandate to the General Auditing Commission (GAC), to investigate the US$ 25 million Mop-up Exercise.

Attorney Tola Thompson Adebayor is however warning against any interference by state actors during the process to uphold the independence of the GAC.

According to the Regional Human Rights Group, Liberia’s international image and credibility remain at a cross-road over the recent alleged missing Sixteen Billion Liberian Dollars.

Adebayor, speaking  to ELBC in an interview Saturday, 16, 2019 in Monrovia, said: “The outcome of the GAC’s investigation into the mop-up exercise of the 25-million United States Dollars could either damage or rebuild the country’s image”.

Attorney Adebayor also wants the Government formulate implementable communication strategies aimed at protecting and upholding the country’s democratic values on free-speech and of the Press.
