Deaths of Corruption Busters Raise Suspicions in Liberia

There are fears that government officials are being targeted in Liberia, following the deaths of three financial auditors in eight days. Reports have said that President George Weah has asked the U.S. Embassy in Monrovia to coordinate with Justice Minister Frank Musa Dean to help with investigations into the deaths. The auditors, including the Director of the Internal Audit Agency Emmanuel B. Nyeswa, Albert K. Peters and Gifty A. Lamah, were investigating corruption within government circles, including the diversion of funds from key revenue-generating agencies, including the National Port Authority and the Liberia Petroleum Refinery Corporation.
