Containers Broker Gone Missing- Dead or Alive?


The manager of a clearing firm that participated in the delivery of a 20-foot container containing L$16billion has gone missing with no clear account as to whether he is dead or alive.

Mr. Lawrence Sirleaf’s JVS Enterprise Inc. was hired by the Central Bank of Liberia to take delivery of the banknotes from the Free Port of Monrovia on March 31, 2018.

Sirleaf’s last Facebook post was on August 31. On August 8, he posted “people make mistakes and bad choices but that’s the part of growth. If you are not learning then you are not growing.”

There is no information about the whereabouts of the broker and he is not amongst individuals listed in a national security circular considered persons of interest to the investigation surrounding the missing billions and barred from traveling away from the country. He has not been seen at his Logan Town residence since May, one source said.

Former Central Bank Governor Milton Weeks is facing police investigation along with key CBL officials in relation to missing cash estimated at $100million United States dollars.

On Tuesday the country’s Information Ministry released a national security circular barring former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s son, Charles Sirleaf, and 14 persons including Central Bank staff and police officers from leaving the country.
