Ellen Dismisses Assistant Minister For Technical Services

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has dismissed with immediate effect, the Assistant Minister for Technical Services at the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism, Mr. RixckBarsi-Giah.

According to an Executive Mansion release, Mr. Barsi-Giah has been dismissed for gross insubordination and disrespect to his superior.

It can be recalled that about a month ago Mr. Barsi-Giah and Information Minister Lewis Brown had some altercation at the Ministry shortly before a regular press briefing in the full glare of journalists.

The Executive Mansion expressed the hope that this will serve as a deterrent and offended officials of government who may have differences among themselves will seek appropriate administrative channels for redress.
