Mohamed Sandi Koroma, former Chief Administrator at the Freetown City Council on Wednesday 7th November 2018 made his first appearance before Justice John Bobsco Allieu to answer to allegations of corruption in respect of issuing Sierra Leone Service passports to people who are not civil or public servants. The accused is charged with three counts of corruption offences contrary to the Anti-Corruption Act of 2008. According to the ACC, the accused, between 5th October 2017 to 17th October 2017 conferred an advantage by presenting his son Ibrahim I.

The defence for the accused was absent as the ACC prosecutor, J. Kaiwo, asked for an adjournment to next Wednesday for the prosecution to call its witnesses. The accused is out on bail as the matter continues.
