The Association of Liberians in France has described as false and fabrication recent stories published in the media about the brutalization of an embassy staff by the Liberian Ambassador to France.
In a release issued last weekend under the signature of the Association's President, Mr. George Carr Nyumah said the allegation made by one Randy Jones was untrue and intended to create confusion among Liberians residing in France, as well as paint a bad image of the Liberian Ambassador to France, Mr. McKinley Thomas.
He said there was no plan of any lawsuit by anyone against the Ambassador to court or intention to complain the Ambassador to the Liberian Government.
Last week, an individual claiming to be the Secretary General of the Association of Liberians in France, Randy Jones accused Ambassador Thomas of brutalizing a staff at the Embassy in France. The Release named Octavius Varney as the Secretary General and not Jones as it was published and broadcast, describing him as an impersonator.
The statement also accused one Richard Parjloh, dismissed from the Embassy for acts incompatible with his diplomatic status, of being one of architects of these false stories (see press statement inside).
Ambassador Thomas has also been accused of marginalizing and strangulating other diplomatic staff, denying them their benefits. Some of the diplomatic staff are reported to be 'dysfunctional' as a result of the marginalization perpetrated by the ambassador (details to follow).
