Liberia: Sen. Nuquay Fined US$7.6k for Power Theft


MONROVIA – FrontPageAfrica has seen documents suggesting that Senator Emmanuel Nuquay has been fined US$7,605 for power theft by the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC).

FrontPageAfrica has not been able to independently verify the documents.

However, the documents seen reveal that Sen. Nuquay’s lawyer signed an MOU with the LEC taking responsibility for the illegal use of power at his former residence in the Omega Community, Paynesville and at the same time committing himself to the payment of the fine.

Senator Nuquay, according to the LEC, violated the Liberia Panel Law chapter 15, section 15.88 which calls for prosecution, punishment (fines), and imprisonment if found guilty and refuses to live up to the law.

The Senator’s Omega estate was found to be illegally enjoined to the LEC power grid on December 14, 2022, however, the commitment to fine was signed on December 29, 2022.
