LVF Frowns at LNOC’s Interference

The Liberia Volleyball Federation (LVF) said it would remain “adamant and unapologetic” to the Liberia National Olympic Committee (LNOC) because its membership suspension was unfair.

President Cllr. Moifee Kanneh said the LVF had a free, fair and transparent election in 2010, which was supervised by the Ministry of Youth & Sports. He disagreed that the LNOC termed the exercise as political interference.

LNOC Condemns Basketball Elections

The Liberia National Olympic Committee (LNOC) has criticized the recently held election of the Liberia Basketball Association (LBA) and has given the association a 90-day ultimatum to have re-elections.

The President of the LNOC, Philipbert Browne said the basketball election has procedural errors and it was not free, fair and transparent.

Mr. Browne maintained that the LNOC is responsible to protect and safeguard the autonomy of its members, and it therefore has the right to issue ultimatum, suspension or expulsion when it is plunged into administrative or technical slip.
