Family of the late Mary-Ann Fossung is contemplating writing the President of Senegal, Mackey Sall, to help the family return her remains from Tunis, the capital of Tunisia, where she received medical attention until her demise on February 3.
However, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in clarification told newsmen day ago that they have met with the family of the late ambassador and all modalities and finances have been settled for the repatriation of the remains to Liberia.
Mr. Sylvester Pewee, Assistant Minister for Public Affairs told Bridge Radio Africa that the Liberian government has already met all requirements for the return of the body and has been in discussion with the family on the funeral arrangements.
He however, refused to say when the remains is expected in Liberia, noting that though it would be a state funeral, the family must be respected.
According to the family source, the Liberian government has failed to settle medical bills since she was admitted at the Carthagene Hospital on December 4. As a result, the hospital has reportedly decided not to release the remains until the bills are settled.
