Trial of Those Who Stole Ebola Money in Sierra Leone Continues by katty : June 25, 2018, 02:10:34 PM
The Executive Director, Programme Manager and Finance Officer of The Needy Today, a local NGO, were alleged to have misappropriated Le300 million meant for groups affected by the Ebola outbreak in Makeni.

According to State Prosecution, Ebola funds were fraudulently withdrawn from The Needy Today bank account at Rokel Commercial Bank, between August 2015 to 6 January 2016, by the accused persons.

On Wednesday, Umar Sesay, prosecution witness, disclosed several fraudulent bank transfers were made into a private account owned by Elizebeth Lebbie and Unisa Kamara on diverse dates. The witness informed the Court about documents signed by the accused in obtaining funds from international donors for the fight against the Ebola virus disease.

The accused people are also accused of bribing Sulaiman Bah, an internal auditor with Goal SL, the sum of Le3 million to discontinue an audit report on the project.

Justice John Bosco revoked the bail condition initially granted by Anti-Corruption Commission during the preliminary investigation. The judge emphasized the seriousness of the allegation pointing out the huge public outcry because of the misappropriation of the Ebola fund by NGOs and government bodies.

The accused persons were later granted a bail condition of Le500 million and two sureties respectively.

On Wednesday 20 June 2018, Sesay submitted to the Court the documents relating to the alleged fraudulent deal including the withdrawal statements at the bank.
As the several documents were submitted, the matter was adjourned to 27 June 2018 as the defence counsel was absent to commence with the case.
