Liberia: Is Ex-CBL Governor Milton Weeks the Sacrificial Lamb in the 'Missing Billions' Saga?

Monrovia — When Charles Sirleaf, the eldest son of former President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf was arrested along with five others, including former Governor J. Milton Weeks, last February, it marked a turning point in the controversy surrounding the alleged disappearance LD16 billion ($100 million (€88 million) from the Central Bank of Liberia.

"Records from Crane Currency of Sweden, which was contracted to print the money, show that Crane delivered 15.5 billion Liberian dollars through Freeport and Roberts International Airport between 2016 and 2018," "All these monies were logged by the CBL (Central Bank of Liberia) and delivered into the reserved vaults of the CBL."

So, the fake story that came out about L$9 billion is saying that of the L$15 billion, nine is missing - now think about that - the entire amount of money supplied in the country half of it is missing - you don't have an economy, you don't have a country," in 2020, the Liberian government dropped charges against Crane currency and stated again that none of the money printed had gone missing and was all accounted for: "... the company accurately and honestly accounted for, audited, invoiced and was paid for every banknote delivered on both orders.

Crane Currency did in fact deliver the correct number and value of banknotes, as set out in two (2) delivery contracts and subsequent documented agreements between Crane Currency and the Central Bank of Liberia.
