Experts to unravel email scam exposed by web mag

Two experts to help investigate a former government official accused of bribery

Two experts from the James Mintz Group (JMG) have arrived in Liberia to help the committee investigating Willis Knuckles, former minister of state for presidential affairs, for alleged bribery, which was exposed by an email exchange.

The chain of emails, branded as Knucklesgate, was obtained and published by Liberian web magazine FrontPageAfrica in August. The emails suggested corrupt practices at the highest level of the Liberian government.

The JMG experts will assist in identifying, reviewing and analysing certain government computers and servers.

They will also seek access to personal computers of certain individuals in order to take forensic images of the hard drives and servers. Data from these computers will be used to determine the emails' authenticity and to review information relevant to the investigation.
