MONROVIA, LIBERIA-Liberia’s Solicitor General Cllr.Cyrenius Cephas says that restitution will be an imperative option for the Asset Recovery Team, instead of prosecution.

Speaking to ELBC Monday, July 22, 2019, via mobile phone, Cllr.Cephus said:” We have decided to suspend prosecution for now and fast track the process through restitution.”

He said the Asset Investigative and Restitution Team is in full readiness to pursue individuals linked to theft, and compel them to restitute said amount.

The Solicitor General said:” The Team needs 2.1(m) million United States Dollars to recover approximately 2.6(b) billion United States Dollars stolen from the Country in the past years.”

He said the action is a Critical National Policy and those involved will not go unpunished.
