Liberia: 133 Put On Compulsory Leave

As part of its precautionary measures to curtail the spread of the deadly Ebola virus amongst employees within the Judicial Branch of Government, authorities at the Temple of Justice have sent home about 133 workers.

The information was contained in a circular posted on the various bulletins placed at the Temple of Justice building, calling on those concerned to stay home for at least 31 days beginning Monday, August 4, 2014.

The measure started last Thursday, July 28, 2014, when a memorandum was issued to all employees on grounds of fumigating the entire building in response to the Ebola virus, which has engulfed the country.

Although the exercise does not affect normal court proceedings, but information gathered by our reporter said it is intended to reduce the number of workers to prevent the spread of the virus.
