The Monrovia City Court on Tuesday charged a 25-year-old man identified as Ben Sonni with forgery, counterfeiting and criminal conspiracy, 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, identified only as Lawrence, remains at large.
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 LRA for their personal gains. Their action violates Section 15.70, Subchapter ‘E’and Section 10.4 of the Penal Code of Liberia, the release said.
Sonni, who is a casual worker at the National Port Authority (NPA), was arrested recently by the Liberia Seaport Police and authorities of the LRA following a tipoff.
Meanwhile, the LRA has advised the public that the Authority does not and will never sell any forms for jobs. “The public is therefore requested to please take note and be guided accordingly,” the LRA said in a statement.
