Search For Ex-Immigration Chief Mounts


Deputy Director of Public Education at the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), Patrick Sandy has disclosed that with the help of the Sierra Leone Police (SLP), the Commission is pretty sure that the former Chief Immigration Officer, Alpha Kholifa Koroma would be brought to book.

According to Mr. Sandy, the warrant posted for the former Chief Immigration Officer was necessitated by his conspicuous absence in the country and that he has to answer to important questions with regards the alleged issuance of Service and Diplomatic Passports to ordinary people who are not civil or public servants.

The fight against corruption, Mr. Sandy furthered, has shifted to top gear with the launch of what he referred to as “Eagle’s Claws.”

The Eagle’s Claws, he said, aim at rooting out corrupt officials in various government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs). With the Eagle’s Claws, ACC he said is more determined to curb corruption than ever.

Already, nine persons, he said, have been arrested by the ACC and are currently helping the Commission with its ongoing investigations.
