Delivering his verdict, the Judge stated that the act of the accused was contrary to the ACC Act of 2008 and that the Commission has proved its case beyond all reasonable doubt; therefore “the court orders that the sentence of imprisonment runs concurrently and the fines run consecutively.” Effectively, the accused will pay a cumulative fine of Le20,000,000 or serve one year imprisonment.

It could be recalled that on dates unknown, between 1st day of September 2015 and 30th September 2015, the convict, John Nabie, a resident of Bumpe Town, Ngao Chiefdom in Bo, Southern Province of Sierra Leone at Bumpe Town solicited and accepted an advantage in the sum of one hundred thousand Leones from beneficiaries of a project called ‘Rapid Ebola Social Safety Net’ being implemented by National Commission for Social Action (NaCSA) to ease plight of families affected by the Ebola in their communities.
