A Liberian-owned foundation is announcing cash reward of L$5,000,000 to anyone having information that can lead to arrest and prosecution of culprits who might have been behind the mysterious deaths of four auditors who prior to their deaths worked for the Liberian Revenue Authority (LRA), and the Internal Audit Agency (IAA). The founder of the foundation issues a statement, as The Analyst reports.
Dr. Daniel E. Cassell, who is Founder, President/CEO of two Christian-based organizations—Kwenyan Professional Health Services, LLC (Parent Company) and Kwenyan and Associates (Subsidiary)—has asked his foundation, the Dr. Daniel E. Cassel Foundation, to provide L$5 million or its equivalent in United States Dollars to anyone who gives information that can lead to the arrest and prosecution of probable masterminds of the death of four important public servants in the George Weah government.
Dr. Cassel, a resident of Pennsylvania, Bucks County, USA, said in a statement that he and his family were “concerned about the growing wave of fear threatening to overwhelm our country as a result of the recent mysterious, and as yet, unexplained deaths of four Liberians, three of whom worked for the Liberian Revenue Authority (LRA), and the other, for the Internal Audit Agency (IAA)”.
Having reached out to some members of the bereaved families to express his deepest condolences for the difficult losses they have sustained, Dr. Cassel lamented that the grieving widows, widower, children, other relatives, friends, and for many Liberians, at home and abroad, the lives and mysterious deaths of Albert, Gifty, George and Emmanuel matter.
“Our Liberian society risks being defined by these lives, and yet, the unexplainable deaths,” Dr. Cassel further said. “Understandably, these families are hurting. For some, they have lost the person who headed, and in some cases, held their families together. Many lives in these families will be long impacted by the loss they have traumatically sustained. My thoughts and prayers are with all of these families, and I appeal to all Liberians of faith to join in prayers for these deeply afflicted families.”
Dr. Cassell completed undergraduate education at Temple University in Pennsylvania, receiving a B.A. in Kinesiology and a minor in Psychology. He later received his first masters in Public Health (M.P.H.) at A.T. Still University in Missouri, and second masters–M.A. and a Ph.D. in Health Psychology/Behavioral Medicine at Northcentral University in Prescott, Arizona.
He is also a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Pennsylvania and a licensed clinical drug and alcohol counselor (LCADC) in New Jersey.
A Liberian who also has over 22 years of professional experiences working with children, adolescents, and adults in the mental, behavioral health and addiction services fields, Dr. Cassel further lamented: “As the head of my family and a father, my heart is broken knowing that as these families grieve and mourn the shocking and tragic deaths of their loved ones, they are still without the answers they need to help them heal, and hopefully bring much-needed closure to the difficult experiences of their loss.
“I know that nothing we will do will dull the pains of their loss. However, it cannot also be said that we did not do all that we could, individually and collectively, to help these grieving families find the closures they need to heal.”
He said finding reasonable closure is also good for the Liberian society and that the responsibility to reach that reasonable closure “falls upon all of us to do all that we can so that our country remains a safe space for all to live, work and care for their loved ones”.
According to him, no society can stop the commission of all crimes but also that no society can be truly free, and hope to be safe, where alleged crimes are not thoroughly investigated, alleged perpetrators apprehended, justice is dutifully served, and the sanctity of life is jealously protected and preserved.
“Therefore, as long as these deaths remain mysterious and unexplainable, the trauma of fear would envelop our society,” Dr. Cassel asserted, adding, “No society can realistically thrive in freedom and justice when its people are overcome by fear.”
Then he declared: “I have therefore instructed my foundation, the Dr. Daniel E. Cassell Foundation, to offer a cash reward of Five Million Liberian (L$5,000,000.00) Dollars, or its equivalent in United States Dollars, to anyone who can provide credible information that will lead to the successful arrest and prosecution of individuals involved in any of the recent deaths of the four Liberians.”
