“The Ministry further states that the balance of two hundred and twenty eight teachers (228) with both Liberian Dollars and United States Dollars Accounts, constituting 80% and 20% percent respectively, have already been disbursed to the GN Bank,” it said.

It is not known if there were any death.

“The Ministry adds that the Liberian Dollars component of 20% for the 228 employees has already been credited by the Bank while the USD component already disbursed by the Ministry is being processed for crediting to teachers’ accounts by the Bank,” it concluded.
