He further expressed hope that our country will overcome the Ebola pandemic. In his response, the President registered confidence in the work of the Commission and noted that “the public health emergency is not a suspension of the Anti - Corruption Act 2008; and that all those responsible for the management of public funds must ensure compliance with the principles of transparency and accountability. ” Whilst notin g the statutory duty of the Commission to make the payment, the President was particularly appreciative of the timeliness of the presentation, especially at a time when government is harnessing resources to meet the challenges of the Ebola pandemic. In a related development , the Commission notes recent publications in respect of Transparency International (TI) rankings. The Commission wishes to state that there is no Corruption Perception Index (CPI) for 2014 as to date; and neither has Sierra Leone been l abeled as the most corrupt countr y by TI at no point in time.

A s always , the Commission continues to assure the general public of its resolve in the fight against corruption in Sierra Leone. ------------------------------------------- KOLONEH SANKOH (M s) DIRECTOR, PUBLIC EDUCATION AND OUTREACH
