Samura Corruption Case: Court to Deliver Ruling Today

The High Court sitting in Freetown will today give its judgement on the alleged corruption case indicting former Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Dr Samura Mathew Kamara and other five persons involved.

The matter which is presided over by Justice Adrian Fisher was brought forward by the Anti-Corruption commission (ACC) over allegations of misconduct and misappropriation of funds meant for the rehabilitation of Sierra Leone’s Chancery in the United States of America.

Today’s ruling will determine if the case against the former minister will be upheld. The implication of the ruling will either allow Kamara to contest as a Presidential candidate of the All People’s Congress CAPC) in the June general elections or face the full weight of the law.
