Commerce suspends inspector at Ganta border

By Franklin Doloquee/Nimba County

An agent of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry assigned at the Ganta -Guinea border in Nimba County has been suspended and forwarded to Monrovia for investigation.

The New Dawn correspondent in Nimba says Agent Nya G. Meapeh’s suspension is due to constantly allowing over 10,000 bags of 25kg rice, cement and 800 drums of gas to leave Ganta for Guinea daily since he was deployed at the border over two years ago.

The 58- year-old commence agent is a freshman student of the PYJ Polyethnic College in Ganta and a strong supporter of Senator Prince Johnson.

Some Guinean drivers who are involved in smuggling huge quantities of rice, cement and gas to Guinea said border security officers demand each truck to 25,000 Liberian Dollars before crossing into Guinea.

The suspension of Agent Nya G. Meapeh at the Ganta- Guinea border brings to two, the number of commerce agents that have been suspended.

Few weeks ago, County Commerce Inspector Alphanso Meamen was suspected of collecting cash from businesswomen in Yekepa without reporting to the Ministry.

Joint Security forces including NSA and LDEA assigned at both the Ganta border and in the commercial city itself are seen daily demanding Guinean truck drivers to give them money to allow them cross with their goods. Editing by Jonathan Browne
