Former Liberian-American Judge Melvin Johnson has disputed a news report he was fired from his post in Lithonia, Georgia.
Johnson said he made a “conscious choice” to spend his time fighting corruption in Liberia. He is one of two Liberian-Americans indicted by the Liberian government for “economic sabotage” last year. Monrovia is seeking their extradition from the United States.
He and his partner, Ellen Corkrum, secretly recorded senior Liberian government officials, including President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, to prove their allegation of corruption within the government.
