The former CEO of MASLOC, Sedina Tamakloe, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison with hard labor for causing financial loss to the state. Daniel Axim, the former Chief Operating Officer, has also been given a five-year prison term with hard labor.

They were convicted on 78 counts, including causing financial loss, theft, conspiracy to steal, money laundering, and damaging public property, violating public procurement laws.

The trial, which began in 2019, saw six witnesses called by the state. Tamakloe, the first accused, was tried in absentia as she fled the country after being granted court permission for medical treatment abroad. Axim, the second accused, testified in person but did not present any witnesses.
