By: Ramsey N. Singbeh, Jr/Margibi county

Citizens of electoral district#3, Bong County employed with HUIREN Mining Inc operating in Gbarmue have accused Representative Josiah Marvin Cole and Bong County Police Superintendent Fasue Sheriff of maltreating them.

Speaking to reporters at HUIREN Mining Inc they explained that the two officials are responsible for their suffering, underpayment and marginalization at the company.

They lamented that chief superintendent Fasue Sheriff whose company was contracted by the company to provide security services is deliberately underpaying them.

According to them, Superintendent Sheriff provides them no incentive contrary to what they had been paid by the HUIREN Mining Inc before he took over the security of the company.

Additionally, they narrated that before the Bong County Police Chief was subcontracted, the Chinese company had been paying them US$170.00, but after taking over, he immediately reduced their salary to US$70.00 and dismissed some of their colleagues who resisted the amount.  

The citizens similarly accused Representative Cole of always quietly going to the company and allegedly receiving huge sums of money, while ignoring their plight.

The citizens are specifically residents of Gbarmue, Matthew Village, Banama, Jackson village and Kpaah respectively, all of District# 3.
