LISCR founder’s death saddens Pres. Weah

President George Manneh Weah has expressed deep sadness at the passing of Yoram Cohen, Founder and Chairman of the Liberia Shipping and Corporate Registry (LISCR).

An Executive Mansion press release issued Sunday, 5 March 2023 says Mr. Cohen died on Saturday, 4 March after a protracted illness.

Cohen has been a long-time friend of Liberia and contributed immensely to the growth of the country’s maritime sector, the Executive Mansion said.

“As the agent for the country, Cohen’s leadership saw the phenomenal rise of the Liberian Flag Registry into the world’s best, fastest-growing, and second-largest following its decline during the civil war,” the release said.

He was also a strong believer in the potential of Liberian youth to help shape the country’s future and was one of the visionaries of the rejuvenation of the Liberia Maritime Training Institute.

Yoram Cohen was also the founder of Cellcom Telecommunications Corporation, now Orange, which caused the mobile telephony sector to be de-monopolized.

Mr. Weah fondly recalls the administration he received from the LISCR founder during his soccer career. 

“He was really a friend and a brother,” said President Weah. “We came a long way after we developed a bond during the twilight of my football career.”
