NRA Slams Contractor Le30m Fine
The Commissioner for National Revenue Authority (NRA) Mr. Ibrahim Sorie Kamara over the weekend confirmed that his institution has slammed a fine of Le30,000,000 on OSENKO a sub-contact firm working for the London Mining Company in Sierra Leone.
Mr. Ibrahim Sorie Kamara disclosed that the NRA is working in close collaboration with necessary partners to note and take legal action against institutions that are operating illegally in Sierra Leone and further vowed to continue to be proactive to track down defaulters.
Commissioner Sorie Kamara then revealed that OSENKO is one of the sub-contractors from the United Kingdom operating in Sierra Leone. He pointed out that before this time OSENKO was operating in Sierra Leone but departed to the UK unceremoniously without paying any heed to their NRA debts incurred as taxes.
According to the Commissioner the sub-contractor has recommenced operations quite recently and has therefore been levied with a fine of Le30,000,000 after a seal has been placed on all of their equipment and senior officers informed about the act of tax violation against the operations of the NRA.
The Commissioner therefore implores all Sierra Leoneans to be very much co-operative in giving out useful information that will help to see the NRA succeed.
It was however later learned that OSENKO has honored part of the fine.
