MONROVIA, April 5 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson has rescinded her decision appointing Atty. Massa Jallabah to the Office of the Ombudsman.

The Executive Mansion expresses regrets for any inconvenience the unfolding situation may cause Atty. Jallabah.
A replacement for the vacancy that has been created will be named subsequently.

The Office of the Ombudsman is empowered to investigate on its own initiative or on any person or cause such investigation to be carried out into violation of the Code of Conduct.
