UNDER INVOICING MAY LAND MILLA GROUP IN TROUBLE
Under Invoicing may land Milla Group into Trouble
By Johnny James
Milla Group, a leading importer of assorted food and non-food items in Sierra Leone is under investigation for tax fraud, under invoicing and other related offences.
The Times SL has been reliably informed that Milla Group is to pay the Government of Sierra Leone over forty million dollars, an amount that should have been used for development purpose under President Bio’s New Direction Government. The said amount were discovered to have been among the amount the Indian company, a subsidiary of Pee Cee and Sons Limited, was alleged to have evaded customs duty in connivance with a Senior Customs Officer, Abu Kanneh, and few others who have been playing the dirty games on behalf of the Indian company in duping the government of Sierra Leone.
A memo presently with The Times SL clearly explained how the Commissioner General of the National Revenue Authority Dr. Samuel Gibao is said to have taken strong decision by ensuring that all monies diverted into personal account should be paid to government. It is understood that the matter has been brought to the attention of President Bio but been that Milla Group has been providing certain support to the president they want to cover the issue under the carpet. Therefore, the official memo and other documents in relation to the issue will be publish online. Effort to contact Milla Group and Pee Cee and Sons Officials proved futile. More details soon.
