Michael R. Pompeo, Secretary of State
September 10, 2020
I’m publishing at the moment the general public title of the previous passport and visas of Andrew Vonplow, former director of the Liberian International Ministry, as he’s concerned in vital corruption. In his official capability on the Ministry of International Affairs from 2018 to 2019, Mr Vonplow was concerned in passport fraud that undermined the rule of legislation, undermined the Liberian public’s belief within the administration of their authorities identification and journey paperwork and jeopardized the protection of immigration proceedings.
This place is made below Part 7031 (c) of the State Division, International Operations and Associated Packages Act, 2020 (Div. G, PL 116-94). Beneath Part 7031 (c), as soon as the Secretary of State engages international governments officers, instantly or not directly, in vital corruption, these individuals and their rapid members of the family are ineligible to enter the USA. The legislation requires the Secretary of State to nominate such officers and their rapid members of the family publicly or privately. Together with Mr. Vonplow, I’m publishing the general public title of his partner Dennis Vonplow and his minors.
This designation reiterates the US dedication to face with the individuals and the federal government of Liberia within the combat in opposition to corruption. The Division will proceed to make use of these officers to advertise accountability for corrupt actors within the area and globally.
