Liberia missing cash: 23 people banned for travelling outside

By Mutala Yakubu

A court in Liberia has banned 23 more people from travelling abroad following the disappearance of more than $100m (£76m) worth of freshly printed banknotes.

All of them are employees of the Central Bank.

The authorities are investigating what happened to two shipping containers full of $16bn Liberian dollars in new banknotes which were brought into the country last year.

They were printed abroad and destined for the Central Bank.

Last week, 15 others were banned from overseas travel, including a son of former president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
