PUL President Abdullai Kamara
ALJA Hails PUL Veep’s Suspension
MONROVIA, March 14 (LINA) -The interim leadership of the Association of Liberian Journalists in the Americas (ALJA) has hailed the recent suspension of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) Vice President, Jallah Grayfield, by the Union’s Executive Committee.
ALJA said the action was a significant step aimed at curtailing ethical transgressions in the Liberian media.
It expressed support for the PUL’s “corrective action” to suspend Grayfield and called on the Union to stand firm in penalizing Liberian journalists who willfully choose to engage in malpractices in the name of the Union.
In a dispatch from New Jersey, U.S.A, the Association thanked PUL President Abdullai Kamara and the Chairman of the Union’s Grievance and Ethics Committee, Frank Sainworla, for the outstanding stewardship demonstrated in salvaging the image and credibility of the PUL and the Liberian media.
The PUL leadership recently suspended Grayfield for one month without benefits for his participation in a fake “PUL Prestigious Award” ceremony which was organized by the National Publishers and Broadcasters Association headed by Liberian journalist Rufus Paul on Friday, February 13.
