The two persons are reported to have been collecting landing Visas from visitors and failing to record the money or provide receipt.

The raid was conducted with the help of a lady who had gone through the airport after visiting Sierra Leone from the UK; and the Immigration staff collected the required $80 from her and then failed to provide her a receipt.

The airport officers in fact encouraged her (the lady) to go through a back door straight into the Baggage claim area to avoid giving her receipt. The two staff were positively identified.

The Commission has been receiving reports from several travellers that Landing visa fees being paid to the Immigration staff at the airport were being misappropriated.

The two immigration staff have been extracted and are being transported to the ACC Head office in Freetown for further questioning.
