Salala Rubber Corporation is situated in Gibi District #5, Margibi County, which is represented at the National Legislature by the Speaker. The company is proud of his accomplishments, and the fact that he once worked for the company. That being said, the company will not do or say anything that will bring his character, or his office into public disrepute.
The media publications referred to herein, which are void of any fact have the high propensity of bringing the office of the Honorable Speaker of the National Legislature into public disrepute, and to also draw the Speaker and SRC management into conflict.
The company wishes to inform the general public, that it is not a political institution but a private corporate entity duly registered, and existing under the Laws of Liberia since 1959. It has never strayed into local or national politics, and it certainly has no intention of doing so now. The very sweeping allegations carried in
The New Dawn, and Capitol Times Newspapers attributed to its management are unfounded and did not emanate from its management. At no time did it reveal to Mr. Mondaye, and Mr. McClain, or any other
person that it has paid expenses to facilitate the travel of the Speaker, or any other politician to Belgium. The Speaker is not pressuring the company to terminate any employee, and it has never told anyone that it has paid 2.2 Million United States Dollars to local residents for crops allegedly damaged in successive years of its
plantation extension operations at the Capitol Building office of the then Representative J. Emmanuel Nuquay, now Speaker, or that the Speaker is influencing additional claims on the company for payment.
