Forgery Suspect Charged & Detained

The Monrovia City Court has charged a 25-year-old man identified as Ben Sonni with forgery, counterfeiting and criminal conspiracy he reportedly committed against the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA).

The City Court on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 charged suspect Ben Sonni and sent him to the Monrovia Central Prison, pending court trial, while his partner in crime only identified as Lawrence is on the run.

Sonni was charged for “knowingly, intentionally and criminally” conspiring with Lawrence and others to produce, print, and sell fake job forms purported to be from the Liberia Revenue Authority for their personal gains. Their action violates Section 15.70, Subchapter E and Section 10.4 of the Penal Code of Liberia.

Sonni, who is a casual worker at the National Port Authority, was arrested recently by the Liberia Seaport Police and authorities of the LRA following a tipoff.

The public is hereby advised that the LRA is not selling any job forms and will never sell any forms for jobs. The public is requested to please take note and be guided accordingly.
