MOVEE Chairman Reacts To Missing US$30, 000

By Bill W. Cooper

The National chairperson of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE), Robert Sammie, has admitted to losing money in the tune of US$30,000 but denied that said fund was intended for political parties.

He said, “Yes, I lost money intended for my family which got stolen from me in my car at the PLP Headquarters but that money was not for MOVEE or any political party contrary to speculations or media reports.”

Recently, it was reported that Sammie, during the official signing of a document saw over six political parties including his MOVEE joining ranks with the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) lost US$30, 000 intended for political parties.

But in reaction to the allegation, the MOVEE chairperson explained that while at the PLP headquarters where the program was held, he did send an individual identified as Prince Woart to his car for a program sheet at which time the US$30,000 got stolen.

Making the disclosure on the OK Morning Rush yesterday, March 13, 2023, Mr. Sammie further clarified that the US$30,000 was intended for an acquisition of land for his family in Bong County.

According to him, he suspected one Prince Woart who rode his vehicle along with him at PLP Headquarters of being allegedly linked to stealing of the US$30,000 which was in his coat pocket.

He however elucidated that the money which he claimed was stolen does not belong to the MOVEE’s Party or any political parties as claimed by some individuals he classified as propaganda, noting that he is not a custodian of party’s money.

Mr. Sammie added that he has since reported Prince Woart to the headquarters of the Liberian National Police (LNP for questioning and interrogation coupled with subsequent prosecution.
