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 e-mail exchange.
The chain of e-mails, branded as Knucklesgate, was obtained and published by Liberian Web magazine FrontPageAfrica in August. The e-mails suggested corrupt practices at the highest level of the Liberian government.
The JMG experts will assist in identifying, reviewing and analyzing 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 e-mails' authenticity and to review information relevant to the investigation.
