Group Warns Against Selective Fight On Corruption

By Edwin G. Wandah

A non-governmental organization, Democracy Watch Initiative-DWI, is calling on the Government of Liberia to avoid selective justice in its fight against corruption. According to the group, Government as a leading anti-corruption and transparency cannot be seen as defending one side and leaving the other side vulnerable.
In a release, the group called on the Government to see the fight against corruption as a national fight instead of taking side.
“No other time is right than now to begin the fight against corruption. But we must caution the Government and Independent Special Counsel that in order for the fight to be credible, it must be done without fear or favor,” the group stated in the release.
“The Independent Special Counsel, if it is indeed independent and desirous of truly fighting corruption, must go after everyone, irrespective of who they are,” the statement averred.
Meanwhile, DWI is warning against what it calls selective fight. “What has immediately caught our attention and which we must immediately flag, is that the fight against corruption is targeted only at officials from the past Government even though, we are witnessing corruption in broad daylight before our eyes and nothing substantive is being done,” the group stated.
The group said, since the CDC-government came into power, several issues of corruption have been raised, including the US$536million for Eton loan, US$426million EBOMAF loan, the US$16bn of currency printed and the US$25million related to the mop-up.
The group also raised the issue recently about the US$6million involving the National Port Authority-NPA, China Union, E.C. Jones and top government officials who are yet to give account.
“If the fight against corruption is going to be selective, there is risk of the fight being perceived as weapon to silence political opponents, we must not lose this fight against corruption because we want to protect our own and our opponents,” the group stated.

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
