MONROVIA – Several workers of the House of Representatives on Thursday besieged the vehicle of Speaker Bhofal Chambers in demand for their 17 months’ salary arrears. Thursday’s protest is just the latest of several other protect staged by these workers at the Capitol Building in demand for their money. In a related development, the leadership of the Liberian Senate headed by Senate President Pro-Tempore Albert Chie and aggrieved Senate staffers have reached a compromise at the Capitol to pay 16 months’ Liberian dollar salary arrears owed them in three installments. The aggrieved staffers were represented by spokesman Charles Brown. At the Judiciary late last year, aggrieved staffers protested for the same purpose, which led protest leader Archie Ponpon setting himself ablaze before the Temple of Justice in Monrovia.
