Congress for Democratic Change Reacts to Global Witness Revelations of Bribery and Corruption in the Liberian Government

 

MONROVIA, MAY 18, 2016: The Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) is shocked, but not surprised, about the contents of the Global Witness Report released last week. The damaging allegations contained in this report once again point to the long standing view that the Unity Party Government is rampantly corrupt and does not care about the common people. These destructive revelations require an independent, non-partisan, and comprehensive investigation because they paint our country’s reputation as a rogue state, literally. Our suffering masses cannot afford to be the subject of such international ridicule.

 

While we welcome the appointment of an investigative panel, the CDC holds the strong view that such investigative panel be headed by an independent person, someone with no official attachment to the Government of Liberia nor its principal officers and institutions. This task force should also include representatives from the civil society and the International Community to ensure its viability, independence, and objectivity. We take this position because these grave charges involve individuals who are responsible for the administration of the state, and the credibility of a panel comprised only of government employees, could be materially undermined
