Liberia’s Center for National Documents and Records Agency or CNDRA is pressing multiple criminal charges ranging from economic sabotage to theft of property and tempering with public documents against one of its employees – defendant John Charlie, over claims of falsifying public records.

A writ of arrest against the accused was issued out of the Monrovia City Court at the Temple of Justice surrounding claims by CNDRA that the accused engaged himself “in falsifying from the Agency,” public records and documents and receiving from individuals the amount more than US$60,000.

He is alleged to have been in the act since 2012 up to 2016, while serving in the employ of the CNDRA, with the alleged intent to defraud the Government of Liberia of its needed revenues.

The writ of arrest against defendant Charlie indicated that he operated by fraudulent means in the falsifying from the Agency documents and public records, and allegedly receiving money criminally from individuals out of deception for his personal use and benefit.

“The alleged act of the defendant being unlawful, criminal, intentional and illegal is in violation of sections 15.51, 12.34 … of the New Economic Act …,” the writ said.
