MONROVIA-The Press Union of Liberia is consulting its lawyers for legal opinion to inform its position on the government’s statement against Radio Bushrod (D-15) and Politician Henry Costa.
“The outcome of the legal consultation will pave the way for the union’s next course of action which could include but not limited to legal action before the Supreme Court of Liberia for interpretation of the Weah Administration’s statement,” the release issued late Monday said.
According to the release, “the Union sees the protection of free speech and freedom of the press as its code mandate and will do everything in protecting this sacred fundamental right enshrined in article 15 of the Constitution of Liberia.
The Union is at the same time in advance conversation with the management of D-15 and the Ministry of Information aimed at finding an amicable way forward in the interest of the country’s reputation.
It can be recalled that Costa told his audience in the past that he was not a journalist but rather a political commentator. That he was not a member of the Press Union of Liberia
