PUL Regrets Gov’t Prolonged Closure of Chronicle Newspaper

first_imgThe Press Union of Liberia (PUL) has expressed regret in the government’s decision to unlawfully close the National Chronicle newspaper since August last year.At a press conference yesterday in Monrovia, PUL President K. Abdullai Kamara said the Union sees this action on the part of the government as a further expression of intolerance, an unwarranted attack on the free press and the failure to utilize due process.“The abrupt, unlawful and prolonged closure of the Chronicle newspaper was a stark reminder of a difficult time in Liberian history, wherein, political and military tyranny limited the people’s right to free speech and freedom of the press. “We seriously believe this action strengthens the distrust between the government and the media, undermines the rule of law and lays to waste the fruitful collaboration that has existed between the media and the government over the years,” Mr. Kamara said.On Friday August 7, the Supreme Court passed a ruling in a Writ of Prohibition issued by the PUL against the government’s unlawful closure of the National Chronicle newspaper since August 14, 2014. The decision denied the Writ of Prohibition, but ordered the reopening of the paper.Meanwhile, Kamara said the decision by the Supreme Court to reopen the paper closes a sad chapter in the failure of the government to abide by due process of law and a reflection of their high degree of intolerance.
