For Immediate Release
Liberia’s Ambassador To Sierra Leone Is Dead

Monrovia, May 13, 2014:  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced with profound regrets the death of His Excellency, Ambassador Thomas Brima, Liberia’s Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary accredited to the Republic of Sierra Leone.

A Foreign Minister release says Ambassador Brima died May 12, 2014 at the Hannibal International Hospital in Tunis, Tunisia where he had gone for medical attention after a brief period of illness. He had been flown there for medical attention.

The Late Ambassador Brima was one of Liberia’s outstanding statesmen who served his country with dedication and commitment in several capacities including serving as Superintendent of Lofa County, Minister of Internal Affairs and in his last capacity as Liberia’s Ambassador accredited to the Republic of Sierra Leone.

Prior to his accreditation to Sierra Leone in 2006, he served in several capacities at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The fallen Liberian Ambassador was the longest serving ambassador in that neighboring country which made him the Doyen of the Diplomatic Corps there.

Meanwhile, his remains will be flown back home from Tunisia pending funeral and burial arrangements.
