The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) commenced the prosecution of former superintendent Milton Teahjay now Senator of Sinoe County on December 12, 2017 at the 14th judicial circuit court in Rivercess County.

In a release, LACC said the prosecution is in relations to allegation that the former superintendent misappropriated proceeds from the sale of illegally tapped rubber and funds from the rental of county land to a logging company and also violated established government regulations in keeping with the Public Procurement and Concession Commission (PPCC) Acts in awarding several contracts.

LACC said charges of economic sabotage, misappropriation of entrusted properties and criminal conspiracy will also be brought against Hon. Teahjay.

The commission sought a change of venue from Sinoe County where the crime was committed to Rivercess County and a team of lawyers and investigators of the LACC are currently assisting with the prosecution.
