The Chairperson of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC), Cllr. Frances Johnson-Alison, has disclosed that the rejection of a bill seeking to grant the LACC direct prosecutorial powers by the 53rd Liberian Legislature is a lost opportunity to the fight against corruption.
In order to overcome new challenges in the fight against corruption, Cllr. Johnson-Alison said the LACC cannot be confirmed to the Ministry of Justice for prosecution. The LACC boss made the disclosure on Friday, June 28, 2013 at the second quarterly chat with the Liberian media.
