MONROVIA, Oct. 26 (LINA) – The Plenary of the Liberian Senate has resolved that Commerce and Industry Minister, Mawine G. Diggs, remains under oath to submit to the Committees on Public Accounts & Audits and Ways, Means, Finance and Budget all relevant documents relative to the rice subsidy by government and the expenditure of the US$15.5 million.

Following a lengthy hearing with Minster Diggs on Tuesday, October 25, Plenary also mandated the Minister of Commerce to ask President George M. Weah as to who advised him that there was sufficient rice in the country following his return from the UN General Assembly and subsequently inform the Pro-tempore of the Senate with respect to the feedback.

The decision was reached as a result of the Commerce Minister’s appearance on Tuesday during the 43rd Day Sitting of the 5th Session of the 54th Legislature, based on a communication received from Senator Jonathan L. Kaipay, for the minister to appear before the Senate.
