The Diaspora Liberians want the Weah-Taylor government to be reconstituted by appointing experienced professionals to serve in the various government institutions.
They further called on the government to provide a full recovery of L$16 billon dollars, US$25m for mopping up excess liquidity, and all other missing funds by prosecuting and seizing assets of government officials involved.
Madam Mouna Farhat read the petition at the Liberian Embassy in the US.
Receiving the petition, Liberian Ambassador to the US George Patten commended the group for peacefully assembling, thus promising that the citizens’ petition will be presented to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for necessary actions.
