  1. This is a great opportunity for George Weah to convince the Liberian people and the world that he is completely innocent of all of the corruption charges for which some of his officials have been sanctioned by the U.S. government. By immediately firing outright the suspended sanction-impacted official who dares to challenge his authority by refusing to resign at the president’s request would be clear and convincing evidence, in my view, of the president’s innocence of the corruption charges. He cannot and should not let such a glaring disrespect go unpunished.
