Commentary: Greaves was investigated after awarding a dubious contract to Zakhem Engineering, a Lebanese company rehabilitating outdated petroleum storage terminals in Monrovia, and then embarrassing Morris Saytumah, then Minister of State for Finance, Economic and Legal Affairs, by leaking voice recordings which showed that the supposed investigator, Aloysius Jappah, had in fact been sent to Greaves to demand $300,000 in extortion money. A long-time confidante of President Johnson-SIrleaf, he was fired in 2009 following this scandal.
