Prez. Sirleaf, Supreme Court Justices Hold Closed-door Discussions

    More than two days following President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf’s meeting with members of the National Legislature, the President yesterday held closed-door discussions with Justices of the Supreme Court.

    The meeting, according to a senior judicial staff, focused on strengthening coordination and collaboration in the fight against the spread of the deadly Ebola virus that has killed over 1000 people in the country.

    The outcome of the two hour discussion was not made public, but the source hinted to the Daily Observer that it was also aimed at promoting partnership support in the fight, generating resources for the fight and for the construction of more facilities to prevent further spread of the deadly Ebola disease.

    “It was meant to promote information sharing within government, strengthen coordination and collaboration, enhance transparency in the Ebola fight and bring leadership up to speed as the government exerts all efforts to eradicate the deadly virus from the country,” the source added.

    Chief Justice Francis Korkpor commended the government’s efforts to fight the Ebola disease, according to the source.

    Chief Justice Korkpor further informed President Sirleaf about his  strategy and   commitment to help prevent the spread of the Ebola disease in the country.

     “We have been exerting every preventive measure to ensure that we win that battle against the spread of the virus,” the source quoted Chief Justice Korkpor as saying. “Even those non-essential staff are still on their compulsory leave, in an effort to prevent the overcrowding of the Temple of Justice,” the Chief Justice told President Sirleaf.
