Minutes after the United States government through its Treasury Department released sanctions on President Weah’s alleged Corrupt officials, the former ruling Unity Party has commended the U.S government for sanctioning some Senior Officials of the Liberian government of President George Weah.
The Party through its press and public affairs bureau commends the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) for placing needed sanctions on three officials of the Weah led government thus demanding the immediate dismissal or resignation of the sanctioned officials.
Minister of State for Presidential Affairs, Nathaniel McGill, Bill Twehway, Manager of the National Port Authority, and Semah Syrenius Cephas, Liberia Solicitor General were on August 15, 2022 sanctioned for corruption, and organized abuse of state resources among other crimes.
The UP calls on the named officials of government to immediately resign or be fired from their positions as they have betrayed the trust of the Liberian people, polluted the governance system of the country and brought shame and disgrace to the people of Liberia.
The UP thank the government and people of the United States of America for always standing with the Liberian people in the fight against corruption and abuse of public funds.
