Liberian police authorities have instructed their officers assigned across the country to arrest and turn over any former official of government that is found to be in possession of government vehicle to face immediate investigation and prosecution.
According to a release issued in Monrovia Thursday afternoon, 15 February, police’s attention is drawn to an alleged “deliberate refusal” of former Government officials to turn over all assigned vehicles that are still in their possession, despite not being re-appointed by the current government.
“The release further noted that the Liberia National Police has instructed all of its officers assigned across the country to arrest and turn over any former official of government that is found being in possession of government’s vehicle(s) for immediate investigation, and prosecution,” police say.
They are warning all former government officials who are still in possession of government vehicles to take note and govern themselves accordingly to avoid embarrassment.
The Liberia National Police (LNP) says such act on the part of former officials to hold onto government vehicles is a blatant violation of the February 9, 2018 deadline set by the government.–Press release
