CBL Investigates Release of Sensitive Information on Social Media

MONROVIA – February 22, 2018: It has come to the attention of the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) that a


transaction involving the travel arrangements of a Government of Liberia delegation on an official visit


has been posted on social media. The CBL views the posting as a serious breach of its fidelity and


confidentiality policy governing the conduct of its employees. Thus, the Central Bank of Liberia ordered


its own internal inquiry.



Based on CBL’s preliminary investigation including a careful review of its CCTV video, a staff was seen


on camera pocketing a photocopy of the document. The CBL Management views this act as violation of


its confidentiality policy and has with immediate effect suspended the said staff.



The CBL has turned this matter over to the National Security Agency (NSA) for further investigation and


will continue to cooperate with the NSA investigation.
