LACC, Britain To Fight Corruption
Britain’s Ambassador to Liberia, Fergus Cochrane-Dyet says the Government of the United Kingdom (UK) prioritizes the fight against corruption in Liberia and would therefore collaborate with the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) in enhancing its work. Speaking recently when he paid a courtesy call on the Executive Chairperson and Members of the LACC, Ambassador Dyet expressed Britain’s interest in the work of the Commission and pointed out that the visit had put him a better position to work with the LACC and seek Britain’s assistance to the Commission.
Ambassador Dyet also praised the Commission for the level of awareness being carried out on corruption, particularly citing the erection of educational billboards in strategic areas as well as other educational programs.
In response, the Executive Chairperson of the LACC, Cllr. Frances Johnson Allison lauded Ambassador Dyet for including and prioritizing the Commission in his visitations. The LACC boss briefed the British Ambassador on the activities of the Commission and assured him of the LACC commitment to the fight against corruption in Liberia despite the numerous challenges it was faced with.
The LACC Executive Chairperson also spoke about progress made by the Commission in the area of prosecution and education, which she said demonstrates that the LACC would remain resolute in the fight against corruption in Liberia.
