Speaking to local media recently, the ACC Commissioner, Francis Ben Kaifala confirmed that they have already closed the probe on the former President and will soon come out with an administrative decision.
According to the ACC Boss, they are currently giving through all administrative scrutiny as they are still yet to determine the prosecutorial threshold, adding that the Commission takes the said investigation as a major priority because of the huge public interest in it.
It could be recalled that this matter drew huge public attention few months ago, when the ACC commenced the investigation on the former President and leader at the main opposition All People’s Congress Party, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma.
