Use of public credit card alleged

Judicial police detained a 35-year-old public employee in Liberia over the weekend on the allegation that he has used a public agency credit card to fill the gas tank of his private vehicle and others.

The Judicial Investigating Organization did not name the individual or say in what agency he was employed, but they did say he was an engineer.

The loss to the government was estimated at 2 million colons or about $3,700. Judicial agents said that the credit crd was used to fill the tanks of third parties’ vehicles, too, and that the license plate numbers written on the receipts were of vehicles that were out of service.
