The Liberian Foreign Ministry released a statement saying that since August 24th falls on Sunday, this year, a day in lieu public holiday is to be officially observed on Monday, August 25, 2008.

As per Liberian law (the "Patriotic Observances Law", Title 26, Liberian Code of Laws of 1956), fixed-date public holidays that fall on a Sunday are not meant to be compensated by a day in lieu public holiday on the following Monday. However, in the past, this has often been done on an ad hoc basis, often at the last minute.
