OFAC SANCTIONS SENIOR LIBERIAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS FOR PUBLIC CORRUPTION

On 15 August, OFAC announced that it has designated 3 individuals for their involvement in ongoing public corruption in Liberia.  It says that corruption has long undermined Liberia’s democracy and its economy, robbing the Liberian people of funds for public services, empowering illicit actors, degrading the business environment, and damaging the rule of law and effective governance in the country.  Those designated are Nathaniel McGill, Minister of State for Presidential Affairs and Chief of Staff to President George Weah; Sayma Syrenius Cephus, the current Solicitor General and Chief Prosecutor of Liberia; and Bill Twehway, the current Managing Director of the National Port Authority (NPA).
