The arrest followed the release of two major reports detailing widespread alleged malpractice at the Central Bank of Liberia. The Central Bank requested an additional 10 billion Liberian dollars, but the request was denied by the Senate. Former Governor Weeks who had stepped down when President Weah took office in January 2018 – surrendered to police. Solicitor General Sayma Cyrennius Cephus says three other officials at the Central Bank of Liberia – Hagba, Walker and Dennis – are also off the hook. This leaves former Governor Weeks as the fall guy in the LD16 billion saga.
