The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) wishes to inform the general public that the High Court of Sierra Leone, Holden in Freetown, presided over by the HON. JUSTICE KOMBA KAMANDA JA, has on the 29th June, 2020, convicted BEN FORNAH of No. 2C Line, Tengbe Town, Freetown, on one-count of corruption offence.

The HON. JUSTICE KAMANDA JA, convicted BEN FORNAH and ruled that he pays a fine of THIRTY MILLION LEONES (Le: 30,000.000/00) instantly; or serve a three years imprisonment term.

Between 1st July and 31st August, 2016, BEN FORNAH willfully failed to comply with applicable procedures in the allocation of public property. Mr. FORNAH improperly allocated to a member of the public, an electric SAGEM Meter, with Serial Numbers 98000391940, being public property in the custody of the United Business Systems, but held on behalf of the Electricity Distribution and Supply Authority (EDSA), without following due procedures contrary to Section 48(2)(b) of the Anti-Corruption Act, No. 12 of 2008.

The ACC was represented by Lawyer M. M SOW, while Lawyer I. KANU represented the convict. Mr. MICHAEL SAMBOLA of Radio Democracy FM 98.1 was the lead prosecution witness in this matter and we thank him and Radio Democracy 98.1 for their support with the prosecution.

The Commission wishes to reassure the general public of its continued resolve to fight corruption at all levels and pursue justice at all times without fear or favour.
