The Bong County Journalists Association of Montserrado County is concerned about the ongoing dispute resolution between Press Union of Liberia Presidential Aspirant, Facia B. Harris and the PUL’s Elections Committee.
We are concerned about the press release issued a fortnight ago by the National Media Council, indicating that they were unable to hear the elections dispute due to the PUL EC members’ blatant refusal to show up.
Therefore, we the above mentioned institution, demand that the National Media Council with immediate effect; since they are the body responsible to hear media-related disputes, issues an immediate statement apologizing to Aspirant Harris, for not hearing her complaint and also ensure that the PUL EC with immediate effect appears before that body so that the complaint filed by Miss. Harris is disposed of.
We are afraid that if this situation is not resolved by latest 8:00am, November 8, 2019, it could lead to similar situation experienced in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County few years ago where a Writ of Prohibition was placed on the PUL Congress due to the PUL Grievance Committee refusal to hear Journalist Omecee Johnson complaint, which led him with no option but to filed his complaint at the level of Supreme Court.
