Dakar - Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf has suspended 46 government officials, including her son, for failing to declare their assets to an anti-corruption taskforce, local media reported on Tuesday.
According to the New Dawn Liberia newspaper, Charles Sirleaf - who is the deputy governor of the Bank of Liberia - is among those who have been temporarily removed from their posts.
Others include the heads of the governance and Aids commissions, the consul-general in New York and the solicitor-general.
When Johnson-Sirleaf began her second term in office this year, she mandated that all government officials declare their assets, in keeping with efforts to present a transparently managed government to the international community.
The 46 officials who did not comply with the mandate will be suspended in the short term, and required to pay a fine to the government, the newspaper reported. - Sapa-dpa
