Liberian President George Weah suspended Nathaniel McGill, the minister of state for presidential affairs, and two other officials after the US Treasury added them to a list of sanctioned people amid allegations of corruption.

The claims against McGill, who is also the president’s chief of staff and Chief Prosecutor Serenius Cyphus and Bill Twehway, the managing director of the National Port Authority, will be investigated, Weah said in a statement on the presidency’s website.
