LIBERIA – The opposition Unity Party has commended 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.
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 thanks 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, a statement from the Party’s Public Affairs Bureau said.
