PUL CALLS ON ALL JOURNALIST TO SHOW UP AT SUPREME COURT TODAY

Date:

MONROVIA – The Press Union of Liberia has said it is excited about the Supreme Court of Liberia’s assignment of a motion to rescind Justice Joseph Nagbe’s ruling, which annulled a stay order on the inauguration of elected leaders of the Union. This hearing is slated for Tuesday, May 2, 2023, at the Temple of Justice.

The annulment motion was born from a case involving Julius K. Kanubah vs. Press Union of Liberia Leadership, Membership, Congress, and Election Committees. Team Kanubah had accused the Press Union of Liberia Leadership, Membership, Congress, and Election Committees of voter roll piling. An accusation the leadership of the PUL has since described as preposterous and an intentional ploy to stain the reputation of the union for self-seeking.

The hearing of the election fallout case within the PUL is crucial because it is tied to the credibility of the 2023 general election. The Press Union of Liberia believes an induction of duly elected leaders of the Union will work for the protection of journalists ahead, during, and in the immediate aftermath of the general election.

The PUL said the outcome of the case will usually add much-needed value to the result of the election as it is free, fair, transparent, and verifiable.

The Press Union of Liberia said it is thrilled by the news of the hearing by the Supreme Court and prays that its outcome will solve the long-running impasse at the Union.

The Union said the long-awaited hearing comes ahead of the day journalists are expected to celebrate World Press Freedom Day on May 3, 2023, which is good news for the media and journalists.

PUL is urging journalists to accept the outcome of tomorrow’s hearing for the good of the journalism community.

The Press Union indicated that the media has a significant role to play in the general election, and as such, the impasse within the Press Union of Liberia cannot continue unabated. It urged journalists, media workers, and Media development practitioners to show up to the Supreme Court to listen to the merits of the case. Press Release
