President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sanctioned several government officials for failing to file their Income, Assets, and Declaration as reported by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission.
According to an Executive Mansion release, Government officials who failed to file are suspended for one month on the job and will forfeit the salary equivalent for the same period.
Government officials who initially filed but failed to re-declare after two years are suspended on the job and will forfeit salary equivalent to the period until full compliance.
Meanwhile, President Sirleaf has commended all government officials who have complied for this exemplary discipline and the contribution which this makes to government’s commitment to transparency and accountability.
