Members of the public are informed that the Attorney-General, Dr. Athaliah Molokomme, will be departing for the United States where she will spend the next month as a Visiting Scholar at the Cornell University Law School.

With the approval of H.E. the President, the Attorney General has taken leave to accept the Cornell offer, which will last from March 21st to April 24th 2009.

During Dr. Molokomme's absence, Mr. Abram Keetshabe will serve as the acting Attorney General.
