Mr. Nelson told mylbsonline Friday, October 25, 2013 that the LACC’s recent report was flawed and lacks merit.

Mr. Nelson also said: “I will be constrained to take a number of actions, including a lawsuit, should the Liberia Anti-Corruption Body fail to correct its recent Asset Verification Report against me.”

His latest letter to the LACC brings to two the number of letters written the body to correct its recent report.

It can be recalled that the Anti-Corruption Commission accused Mr. Nelson and two others not named of accumulating wealth that they could not explain during its asset verification process.
