PRESS RELEASE

THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT

EXECUTIVE MANSION

REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA

 

The Office of the President has issued the following statement:

The appointment of Mr. Emanuel Shaw as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Liberia Airports Authority (LAA) was intended to bring an experienced financial and aeronautical professional to assist in developing the plans for modernizing Roberts International Airport and to guide the process for correcting the continued difficulties found in International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) assessments of the airport safety and operational adequacy.

The assignment was meant to be temporary as the Government seeks management that is willing to assume responsibility for planning and implementing the long-delayed development of RIA and other domestic airports.

However, given details regarding sanctions imposed against Mr. Shaw by the United Nations and the United States Government that have been brought to her attention, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has withdrawn the appointment.
