2014 Press Releases
We are aware of reports that several Liberian government officials had their U.S. visas cancelled recently. Under U.S. law, we cannot comment on individual visa cases.
The U.S. Department of State has released its 2014 Trafficking in Person (TIP) report on Liberia and has praised Liberia for making substantial progress in combatting human trafficking although it says more work still needs to be done.
The Armed Forces of Liberia moved closer to operational independence last week when Liberian Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Ziankahn assumed command of the 23rd Brigade from Nigerian Army officer Colonel Audo. This change of command marks the first time that a Liberian officer has commanded the unit in approximately four years.
