Eugene L. Fahngon Continues to Embarrass President Weah and the CDC

President George Weah, you need to show strong leadership and ask Deputy Minister Eugene L. Fahngon to either resign or have him fired! Fahngon is an embarrassment to your administration! Fahngon’s Conduct Around Other People is Objectionable Grounds for Dismissal Fahngon continues to violate the National Code of Conduct Laws of the Republic of Liberia while espousing that “No one is above the Law.” He continues to violate the following laws: PART IV, subsection 1, 2, 3, 9, and PART XI, paragraph 1, 10, 15, 21 of the Code of Conduct.

The Palestinian Refugees: Right vs. Reality

Dr. Alon Ben-Meir In my last article, I argued that the ultimate solution to the Palestinian refugees’ right of return rests on resettlement and/or compensation.

Many Palestinians living in and outside the West Bank and Gaza, however, continue to claim that the refugees’ right of return is inalienable.

By Dr. Alon Ben-Meir The nearly three months of demonstrations by Palestinians along the Israel-Gaza border under the banner of the “March of Return”, which turned violent and has remained as such as of this writing.

The CBL’s rate, which is set based on data collected from the commercial banks, parallel market and the licensed forex bureau, has once again started to increase with the speed of light, thus developing the potential to butcher the already declining purchasing power of workers, civil servants, farmers, petite traders, etc. This is akin to doing more of the same things...
