Liberia: Libtelco Rejects 'Criminal Empire' Story

The management of the Liberia Telecommunications Corporation strongly rejects and denies accusation published by a local daily alleging that LIBTELCO is reportedly operating a "criminal empire."

In a release, LIBTELCO said contrary to that unverified report, the corporation has embarked on a massive expansion of its network and infrastructure to ensure that people from all walks of life have access to reliable, secure and fast fiber optic internet services.

Additionally, the tireless effort of every employee of LIBTELCO and other actors in Liberia's telecommunications sector have meaningfully helped the recent launched of the inter-connecting government digital platform that enables easy and quality communication channel among public institutions and their practitioners by means of data, voice and media.

This process allows every public entity to use one digital platform to communicate daily; contrary to a local daily publication that everybody is focusing on amassing of wealth at the corporation, which is totally false and misleading.

Currently, an investigation is ongoing internally and with state security personnel to authenticate the truthfulness of any financial accusation or improprieties.

Meanwhile, the corporation seriously frowns at judgmental, lop-sided and tainted assertions by any individual or institution especially that which is solely misleading and seems to be engendered towards eliciting negative public sentiments, as well as prejudice the ongoing investigation.
