Alimamy Kamara, the former Youth Minister under the All People’s Congress (APC) Party Regime has been indicted by the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC).

A release from the ACC on Thursday, July 15 signed by Commissioner Francis Ben Kaifala states that Kamara was being indicted for failure to declare his asset during his term as the minister.

ACC said the indictment was filed on 8th July 2021, and the accused is expected to make his first appearance in the High Court of Sierra Leone on July 22, 2021.

Kamara was charged to court on Nine (9) Counts of Failure to Declare Assets, Income, and Liabilities contrary to Section 122 (a) of the Anti-Corruption Act.

The release states that while Kamara was a Member of Parliament, the Minister of Youth Affairs, and Sierra Leone’s Ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Iran respectively between 2008 and 2018, he failed to declare his assets, income, and liabilities as required of every public officer.

“When asked by the ACC as to the reasons for this failure, he refused to explain claiming that he has been advised by his lawyers not to make any statements,” the commission pointed out.

ACC further explained that the matter against Alimamy Kamara is one of the referral cases made to the ACC by the Commissions of Inquiry set up to investigate the Administration in governance between 2007 and 2018.
