President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has dismissed the Deputy Minister for International Cooperation and Economic Cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Thomas Kaydor.
According to an Executive Mansion release, the Liberian leader said his dismissal is due to behavior unbecoming of a senior government official as an investigation proceeds by the Ministry of Justice with the misuse of Japanese Grant Funds by officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Liberian Chief Executive has also dismissed Assistant Minister for Legal Affairs, Mr. Jeddi Armah for the authorization of a passport to a Ministry staff that did not comply with policy.
Relatedly, the 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.
These decisions take immediate effect.
