In U.S. President Weah And Delegation Confined At The JFK Airport For Hours

President Weah departing Liberia to attend the United Nations General Assembly on Friday, September 16, 2022

Report from New York, the United States says the Liberian leader, President George Manneh Weah, along with a government delegation who departed Liberia on Friday, September 16, 2022 for the United States of America to attend the 77th Session of the United Nations upon arrival at the JFK International Airport were confined for several hours.

According to our U.S. contact, the Liberian leader reportedly did not have any security escort to carry he and his delegation to the headquarters of the United Nations in Manhattan, New York as a country sitting President, a situation which had degraded the President of Liberia who was officially invited to attend the United Nations General Assembly or UNGA.

Our source further hinted that Liberians in the Americas are expected to stage a protest against the Liberian government for the way the Liberian Government is being run under the leadership of President Weah, making reference of the high wave of corruption, and to buttress the efforts of the U.S. Government on the imposition of sanctions on government officials, and to further call for more officials to be sanctioned.

The source also revealed that where the Liberian leader and his delegation are currently residing in Manhattan, New York, there is no security protection been put in place to protect the Liberian VIP, a situation some Liberians who spoke to our U.S. contact noted this is not a good sign for the Liberian presidency.
