Liberia Govt Official Back at Hearing, Slams Harassment Claims

Dee Maxwell Kemayah, Liberia's foreign minister-designate, faced the Senate's foreign affairs committee for a second time for confirmation in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment against him by an employee of Liberia's Mission to the United Nations. The Senate's foreign relations committee halted the hearings when the allegations first surfaced. The ambassador was nominated by President George Weah after spending two consecutive years as the country's UN representative. Sexual harassment allegations came to light after Kemayah's nomination. Kemayah has called the allegations a "take-down campaign".
