Pres. Sirleaf Sacks Minister For Assaulting Police Officer

MONROVIA, September 26 (LINA) -President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has dismissed with immediate effect the Assistant Minister for Sectorial Planning at the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning, Jeremiah Krah, for assaulting police officer Beauty Mulbah.

According to an Executive Mansion press release, the Liberian leader described as “unacceptable” an assault on a law enforcement officer, particularly a female, by an official of government.

She hoped her action will serve as a deterrent to others in government who would want to use their positions to abuse and violate the rights of others.
