Gold fraud – Mines officer fleeces investor’s US$80,000

An officer of the Ministry of Mines is reportedly a suspect of police investigation of an offence of fraud involving a sum totaling US $80,000.

The Anti Fraud Syndicate of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), last week confirmed arresting and keeping in their cell, Peter Kamara, an officer of the Ministry of Mines concerning an allegation that himself and handful of conmen amidst a Ghanaian Professor Kumba, conspiratorially collected US $80,000 from three Swiss nationals (names not told by the police) claiming they have gold for sale knowing same to be false.

Police sources say Peter was held for a number of days helping the police in their investigations.

That he acted as mines inspector, examined the kilos of gold substances, and later guaranteed payment to cohort con artists by the Swiss foreign investors.

Peter, the police at CID said, was recommended to the Swiss investors by one Professor Kumba, days prior to the arrival of the forenamed investors in Freetown, Sierra Leone to pay for, and collect the kilos of gold.

Professor Kumba, who himself is a fraudster is supposedly residing in Ghana. Police source says however that the plot to swindle money owned by the Swiss investors has international relations.

It is a fact that Peter and other Mines officers in Sierra Leone are cabalists of fraudsters, who on number of times have aided the fleecing of money owned by foreign as well as local investors.

Findings are that officials of the Sierra Leone Ministry of Mines have had countless time overdoing organized crimes; thus aiding ‘491ers’ con artists swindle hundreds of thousands of investors’ money.

Peter, placed one among the rest, our findings state, has timelessly faced the police to react/answer to complaints regarding his involvement in gold and diamond fraud.

Facts as told by detective Superintendent Samuel Kargbo are that gold paid for by the Swiss investors was kept at the Rokel Commercial Bank where later it was eventually proved to be fake.

“The exhibit is with us pending investigation,” he said. “Upon police examination of the purported gold, we’ve proved that the substance was not gold but brownish stones dust.”

Peter was granted bail after spending seven days in police cell.  The matter is under investigation.

    PLEASE E-MAIL YOUR INFORMATIONS TO Info@Freetowncrime.com
    In September 2008, our staff flew to Freetown in order to buy there 1 kilo of Golddust from John Kamara and Mask Valentine. They met with the staff in the Mammy Yoko Hotel, John Kamara and Mask Valentine brought 1 pound Golddust. The agreed purchase price was $ 30.000 and was paid. The next morning we wanted to see the gold exporter and went there along with Alhaji Abu Sessay, F.C. Funrich Company Ltd., 41 Derrick Drive Spur Road, Freetown, to pick up the export tax and export papers. Just 1000 Meters away from the hotel on the road, suddenly the police stopped the car. An alleged plainclothes officer said he would carry out a check. We got out and the car was searched. In this case the pilot was found with the gold. Since the man was in civilian clothes and showed me a card, I told him that we return to the “Mammy Yoko” hotel. There was the UN police. I opened my suitcase. He refused. He agreed, however, to go into his office. We then drove together to the Headquarters Operational Support Division (OSD), King Harman Road, Freetown. There we all went to the office of the ASP Mohamed Bangura and Sesay inspector Abas. Both officers were in uniform and one had the name of Mohamed Bangura at his blue uniform. I then opened my suitcase and showed the contents. He found the gold packaged and wondered what it was. I told him that it was the gold that I bought Mask of Valentine and Mohamed Kono. The civil police said then that it was banned in Sierra Leone to sell gold. The civil police searched my pockets and took 5000.00 EUR from me in cash. I had on hand to pay the export tax and UPS. In addition, he took my two cell phones and my passport. Mask Valentine told the boss that he knew the police chief and asked them to make calls with it. After about 30 minutes came back to the office and the gentlemen told Mask that she had spoken with the police chief and he would have consented to let me go if I pay 1500.00 EUR. If I wanted that mask Valentine and John Kamaracame free, I should have to pay an additional 5000.00 EUR. I agreed because I could not do nothing else in this situation. ASP Bangura told me I could come back tomorrow at 10.00 clock in his office. I agreed and was able to leave the office with Mask Valentine and Mohamed Kono. I asked them what was in gold. I was told that it was confiscated first. We still do not get back the gold, we therefore assume the ASP Mohamed Bangura and were paid as Inspector Abas Sesay John Kamara, Alhaji Abu Sesay and Mask Valentine and Chief Bai Kargbo, Abdul Wahid in order to get the gold back. We therefore use a reward totaling $ 500,000 from the leading to the arrest and conviction in court: First John Kamara, born on 05.20.1984, was born in Kambia Town, Sierra Leone Second Bai Kargbo, Abdul Wahid, who was born on 22/03/1960 in Kamakwie, Sierra Leone Third Alhaji Abu Sesay, born on 06.08.1978 in Port Loko, Sierra Leone 4th King Alfred Sesay, born on 9/10/1971 in Freetown, Sierra Leone 5th Victor Lamah 6th ASP Mohamed Bangura, Police Operational Support Division (OSD), King Herman Road Freetown 7th Inspector Abas Sesay Police Operational Support Division (OSD), King Herman Road Freetown
