The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission has placed the entire leadership of the National Elections Commission (NEC) under full scale corruption investigation for the reported hiring of several pieces of thermometers costing around one hundred and eighty thousand United States Dollars.
According to a press release from the Commission said all the seven Commissioners and other senior executives of the NEC will begin making statements at the LACC from November 19, 2021.
The release quoted the Executive Chairperson, Cllr. Edwin Kla Martin as saying the LACC was deeply concern about the reports and it is determined to have an understanding of all elements of the transaction.
It can be recalled that earlier this week, it was widely reported that the National Elections Commission spent a whopping one hundred and eighty thousand United States Dollars to rent several pieces of thermometer for the conduct of By-Elections in four counties.
