Liberia's supreme court has barred the justice minister from practising law because she briefly released a jailed journalist on compassionate grounds last year. The court ruled that Christiana Tah was guilty of contempt of court when she allowed Rodney Sieh to go home for a month because he had malaria.  Sieh then returned to jail before being definitely released.
