The Executive Chairperson of the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC), Cllr. James N. Verdier, Jr. says it is the shared responsibility of all citizens and residents of Liberia to ensure the protection of the nation’s stability and integrity by supporting and assisting the crackdown on criminal behaviors in various forms.
Cllr. Verdier said such shared responsibilities are essential to the fight against crime in society; these include reporting to security authorities strange movements of strange goods and cargoes, suspicious financial transactions and cooperating with security and other regulatory authorities about the commission of these crimes.
The LACC head spoke Monday, March 18, when he served as keynote speaker at the official launching of the project “Capacity Building and Sensitization Campaign against Money Laundering, Illicit Drugs and Terrorist Financing in Liberia” at the St. Theresa Convent Pastoral Retreat. The project is being implemented by the Center against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing in Liberia (CAMTEFIL) with funding from OSIWA.
The LACC Executive Chairperson also welcomed the existence of CAMTEFIL as a necessary and unavoidable partner in the drive to minimize the occurrence of corruption in public and private institutions by insisting on transparency, accountability and integrity in the administration and operation of entrusted public duties and responsibilities.
