Brown made the allegation Tuesday on a local radio talk show, Red Power.

Brown over the years has been very critical of the company. It is not known what has made Brown to change overnight but said, “it is the way the company’s attitude has changed overnight.”

According to Brown, Parker needs to answer some hard questions from the government. If this is not done, it may affect the investment in the long run in Liberia.

“Parker is still influencing people around the company to stage demonstrations against the company.

The National Security Agency (NSA) should invite David Parker,” Brown said on the radio Talk show.
