The sacked Executive Director of the Sierra Leone Maritime Administration (SLMA), Sarah Bendu has paid over Two Hundred Million Leones to the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) for stolen monies.
Before her recent sacking at the Maritime Administration, she was also involved in an alleged corruption scandal at the Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority (SLRSA) where she served as Executive Director under the previous administration.
According to the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), she (Sarah Bendu) is to pay the sum of Five Hundred Million Leones (Le500, 000000).
“At the announcement of the agreement that was reached between Sarah Bendu and ACC, she has already paid in cash the sum of Two Hundred and One Million Three Hundred and Fifty-Five Thousand Leones (Le201,355000),” confirmed ACC.
By law, the fact that she agreed to pay and has started making payments, makes her guilty as charged.
