By Decontee Wesseh /LINA/Intern

MONROVIA, November 3 (LINA) -Deputy Information Minister Isaac Jackson has said government remains committed to ensuring that media offences are decriminalized in the country.

He assured that the government will always consider journalists as amicable partners and would do nothing to hamper such relationship.

Deputy Minister Jackson gave the assurance at the Ministry of Information regular Ebola press briefing in Monrovia on Monday when he congratulated the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) as it celebrates “International Day of Ending Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists.”

According to Jackson, the government also sees journalists as partners in ending all forms of crimes against the media and journalists that will serve as hindrance in the discharge of their duties.

He urged media practitioners to remain steadfast and focused in their work as they are obliged to uphold the public trust.
