As He Begs for More Time ACC Boss Shows Gross Incompetence

Although the country’s Anti-graft body, Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) may argue that their action to continue adjourning the 2017 Hajjgate matter is in line with the New Direction but the public perception and believe is that the ACC delaying tactics to fast track the trial process is as a result of the lack of sufficient evidence.

In fact, many people from the public are accusing the ACC Commissioner of gross incompetent because they were expecting to witness a speedy trial on the said matter.

Some weeks ago, the Commissioner, Francis Ben Kaifala postponed the High Court hearing with the statement that they were redoing the charges. The public was expecting the ACC to have allowed the matter to be held by the next adjournment date but all of a sudden it was postponed again with the conviction that the Commissioner also announced that the Judge was absent before the matter came on 22nd August 2018.

The indictees were charged for allegedly embezzling public funds allocated to the 2017 Hajjgate.

Count one reads, conspiracy to commit corruption offence contrary section 128 of the ACC Act of 2008 by Victor Bockarie Foh.

Count two, misappropriation of public funds contrary section 36 of the ACC Act of 2008 by Victor Bockarie Foh and Sheka Sahid Kamara among others. The matter was adjourned to September 2018.
