Africa-Press – Sierra-Leone. The former chairman of the National Patriotic Party-NPP, Chief Cyril Allen has lashed at Allen White, former Chief Investigator of the United Nations backed Special Court for Sierra Leone (2002-2005). Dr. White directed and supervised all global criminal investigations involving war crimes, and crimes against humanity. Dr. White’s efforts resulted in the indictment, and conviction of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia as well as 12 related indictments.
But Chief Allen in a pre-recorded tape obtained by this paper described Dr. White as an international gangster who is involved in blackmailing some African leaders.
“Fellow Liberians, my name is Chief A. Cyril Allen. I speak as an individual. I do not represent any institution. I do not represent any organisation, political parties, I do not speak for any group of people, I speak in my own name and on my own behalf and have always taken full responsibility for the comments, information and messages that I disseminate. The reasons for my interview and for my recording right now is to address a particular indidal and prevailing our nation and its people.
He said: “Many years ago, Mr. Allen White, this international gangster, that plays a major role in deceiving and undermining and extracting monies from Africans, in the name of the U.S. Government say, or the U.S. government Opinion or decisions of a group of people that he does not represent.”
“The United States of America has international representation at Ambassadorial level, has international representation at economic and legal levels and Allen White is not one of those. He’s been going around the continent vaccinating and perambulating, deceiving national leaders, blackmailing them; undermining governments and spreading unconfirmed and unorthodox rumors about individuals and national leaders of our continent.”
Dr. White is recognized as an international criminal justice expert and has provided witness testimony at U.S. Congressional hearings. Dr. White developed anti-corruption training programs utilized by the Afghanistan Ministry of Interior. Also, directed a government wide anti-corruption program in Uganda to strengthen the government capabilities tackling corruption and asset recovery.

Dr. White has collaborated with the ABA/ICC Program providing criminal investigative training and technical support, U.S. State Department Office of Global Criminal Justice & DHS/ICE Human Rights Violators & War Crimes Unit, based in Washington, DC.
“There is a time for everything. Liberians sat supinely and watch Allen White and his group of international legal gangsters, convict, lied, conspired, misrepresented and convicted our 21st president and throw him behind bars in great Britain.”
“Since when the Europeans become judges and those to reprimand African leaders” Chief Cyril Allen question.
It can be recalled that recently, the minister of State for presidential Affairs, Nathaniel McGill said some people in the international circle were blackmailing him.
