Liberia: CEMENCO Management Refutes FPA Story


MONROVIA — The Management of Liberia Cement Corporation (CEMENCO) says its attention is disturbingly drawn to a story carried in the March 2, 2021, edition of FrontPage Africa (FPA) Newspaper under the heading: LIBERIA: CEMENCO LINKED TO FRAUDULENT PACKAGING OF CEMENT.

The story, by a Staff Reporter of FPA, asserts that investigation by the paper has uncovered “… what is being described as a deceptive business practice by a renowned cement company, CEMENCO in Liberia.”

In a press release, the Management of CEMENCO categorically denies the story as baseless, untrue and published with reckless disregard for the truth and journalistic prudence.  Even though the story is purported to be the outcome of an investigation conducted by FPA, Management says that at no time was it contacted by FPA to confirm and/or get its side of the story.

“Certainly, Management is left to wonder what kind of investigation was it that blind-eyed the other side (CEMENCO),” the press release adds.  See page… for the full text of the press release issued by the Management of CEMENCO.
