LRA Clears Paul Siaffa of Criminal Charges


The administration of the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) has cleared one of its three auditors of his alleged involvement in soliciting bribes to compromise tax payments in the millions of dollars.

Paul H. F. Siaffa of the Large Tax Audit Division was cleared of solicitation of bribe or “cold water” following an investigation the LRA Professional Ethics Division (PED) recently conducted.

Mr. Siaffa along with two other auditors was arrested by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) Enforcement Unit in Monrovia on Wednesday, May 31 this year for alleged extortion and criminal solicitation to reduce the tax liability of US$5M of a business entity for a bribe of US$12,000.

In a September 6 Letter of Clearance, the LRA, through its Human Resources Division, informed Siaffa that the July 25 report from the investigation conducted by the PED had cleared him of all allegations and was requesting him to return to work on September 11.
