For Impersonating as Inspectors, Ministry of Labour Dismisses Five Employees

By: Jeremiah Sackie Cooper

Monrovia, – The Ministry of Labour has announced the immediate dismissal of five of its employees for impersonating as inspectors of the Ministry in Gbarpolu County. The dismissed employees are: Edwin S. Seebo, Victor S. Whymah, Samuel S. Sambola, Bill S. Ninneh and Raymond Saah (Inspector).

The dismissed employees have been instructed to return all government properties in their possession to the Human Resource Director/Department.

Labour Ministry made the disclosure on Wednesday June 18, 2024 through a press release.

According to the release, the action was triggered by information from Gbarpolu County Superintendent Sam Zinnah reporting the acts of the dismissed employees to the Minister of Labour Cllr. Cooper Kruah.

On June 17, 2024, the superintendent of Gbarpolu County alerted the Minister of Labour, Cllr. Cooper Kruah, Sr. about individuals posing as the ministry’s inspectors.

These individuals were reportedly arresting alleged aliens and confiscating their passports under the disguise of being official inspectors.

A press release from the Labour Ministry stated that an immediate investigation revealed the involved individuals, while employees of the Ministry were not authorized inspectors.

Their actions were deemed entirely unauthorized and illegal, as they had no sanction from either the Acting Minister or Minister Proper.

Following the investigation, Minister Kruah ordered the immediate dismissal of the five employees implicated in the illegal activities in Gbarpolu County, affecting similar case of an inspector in Monrovia.

The Ministry emphasized that this decision serves as a stern warning to all employees that unlawful behavior will not be tolerated.
