Pres. Sirleaf Fires Two At Foreign Ministry, Suspends One
MONROVIA, August 25 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has dismissed the Deputy Minister for International Cooperation and Economic Cooperation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Thomas Kaydor.
According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader attributed Kaydor’s dismissal to behavior unbecoming of a senior government official as an investigation by the Ministry of Justice on the misuse of Japanese Grant Funds by officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues.
Meanwhile, the Liberian Chief Executive has dismissed Assistant Foreign Minister for Legal Affairs Jeddi Armah for authorization of the issuance of a passport to a Ministry staff that did not comply with policy.
At the same time, President Sirleaf has directed the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Augustine Ngafuan, to suspend the Director of Passport, Mrs. Finda Davies, for one month on the job without pay for carrying out instruction by issuing a passport even though it was clear that there was a violation.
According to the press release, these decisions take immediate effect.
