More U.S. Sanctions For Corrupt Liberian Gov’t Officials – Sources

Multiple sources from the United States have credibly hinted the GNN that some officials of the Liberian Government have been shortlisted to be sanctioned due to their continuous role in mass corruption and the abuse of human rights and other activities that are creating hardship for the majority of the Liberian people.

According to our sources, this latest move is a result of the complicities of many of the Liberian Government officials in rampant corruption at the detriment of the Liberian people, many of whom who cannot afford a daily meal, while these officials of government are wastefully enriching them daily without remorse.

“Despite the imposition of sanctions recently on three senior Liberian government officials including President George Manneh Weah former Chief of office Staff, Nathaniel McGill who also served as Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Mr. Bill Twehway; former Managing Director of the National Port Authority (NPA), and the country former Solicitor General of Liberia,  Sayma Syrenius Cephus.

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) designated these three Liberian government officials for their involvement in ongoing public corruption in Liberia. They were designated pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13818, which builds upon and implements the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act and targets perpetrators of serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world.

According to GNN sources based in the United States speaking via mobile phone, specifically in New York, said this time additional four officials of the CDC-led government of President Weah from the three branches of the are expected to be sanctions designated before the end of 2022, noting, “Those who are expected to be sanctioned, according to reports are those who have allegedly refused to do the Liberian people job; but rather enriching themselves,” one of our sources confiding in the GNN noted.

However, detail of this report will be released next week.
