As State House Officials, Others Scam Greek Investors CID Allegedly Protects Scammers
It is no gainsaying that the spate of injustice in Sierra Leone today is becoming an eyesore. It has now become endemic to a point that even the authorities charged with the responsibility of dispensing justice most times, are the worst perpetrators of injustice. Hundreds of Sierra Leoneans and foreign nationals are being subjected to gross injustices on a daily basis by most times, authorities responsible for the dispensation and enforcement of justice.
It now seems the law in Sierra Leone today is only meant for the privileged few who are either those at the helm of government or those with close ties to government authorities.
A classical example is the case of two Greek investors, Nicolas Nicolaides and Nikos Galatis, owners of Circus Casino with over $ 800,000 investment, who are victims of several scams running into the tune of over two hundred thousand dollars ( $ 200,000), perpetrated by State House officials including the Special Envoy on Trade and Investment, Saccoh Mati Aladji , Daniel Moiba (T. Boy), who claims to be an employee at State House that is mandated and positioned at the Intelligence Gathering Unit and other businessmen including Emmanuel Kabba, a restaurant owner at Lungi Airport, Ahmed Adams, a business man who claims to have a contract with a certain Chinese Company for the provision of trucks, Gaby Alexe, a licensed trade in diamonds, Chief Kondeh, an artisanal miner among others.
Reliable documents and other information in possession of Sierra Express Media reveals that despite complaints lodged at the CID against those fraudsters, the police at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) headed by Mr. Frank Alpha are doing absolutely nothing to give justice to the Greek Investors.
It is well over five or six months since some of those matters have been reported at the CID and till date not a single one has been charged.
Even though there are arrest warrants for the likes of the Special Envoy to President Bio on Trade and Investment, Saccoh Mati Aladji, Adams Ahmad, Emmanuel Kabba among others, the CID cannot effect any arrest talk less of charging any matter to court whilst the culprits are moving about their normal businesses freely.
Meanwhile, the head of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Frank Alpha, told me via a text message that the matters should have been charged to court but the complainants, Nicolas Nicolaides and Niko Galatis prevented them from doing so. He said the complainants only want to use the police to settle their scores after the suspects have failed to do what they promised them (complainants).
In subsequent editions, details of the various matters will be published.
