Ms Isha Johansen, Sierra Leone’s FA president has been charged with abuse of office and public funds by the country’s Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). reports BBC Sports.
She has been indicted on six counts, as has Sierra Leone FA (SLFA) Secretary General Chris Kamara. Both of them were detained last year as the ACC investigated potential abuse of funds.
According to BBC Sport, Isha Johansen has denied the charges, which come two days after she announced her intention to stand for another term.
When interviewed, she said “This announcement by the ACC was inevitable and predictable – I am deeply saddened,”
“It’s another sad day for justice, integrity and patriotism in Sierra Leone, another sad day for any woman who dares to pioneer change. I don’t know how my story will end, but nowhere will it be written that Isha Johansen ever gave up.” She added.
The first appearance in court for both Johansen and Kamara is slated for 30 October 2017.
