Lawmaker Urges MICAT To Create Awareness On ‘Code of Conduct’
By Hilary Vasco Wiagbe

MONROVIA, October 27(LINA) -The Chairman of the House Committee on Broadcasting, Information, Culture and Tourism, Richmond Anderson, has
challenged the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT) to create awareness on the Code of Conduct.

Section 11.10 of the Code of Conduct under ‘Improper Behavior’, stipulates that no public official or employee of Government shall engage in any act that is fraudulent, embarrassing, profane, obscene, defamatory or otherwise unlawful or inappropriate.

Anderson  said, he believes that when the Code of Conduct is publicized, public officials or employees of government will know their  ‘dos and don’ts  and refine their attitudes in society.

He made the statement Monday when Information Minister Lewis Brown accompanied Deputy Minister of Information for Public Affairs, Isaac Jackson, before the House Committee on Broadcasting, Information, Culture and Tourism, based on a complaint filed against Jackson by Montserrado County Representative Julius Berrian that he recently referred to the lawmakers as “counterfeit.”

The Montserrado County lawmaker’s statement comes in the wake of a recent confrontation between Deputy Minister Jackson and Montserrado County Representative Acarous Gray in the media, where the two officials verbally attacked each other.

The Anderson Committee was mandated two weeks ago by Plenary to probe the allegation and submit its findings in a week.
