PUL Boss Frowns on The Abuse of Human Rights
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA September 24(LINA)-The president of  the Press Union of Liberia ( PUL), Abdullah K. Kamara, has frowned on human rights abuses in Liberia and the sub- region.

He observed that Liberia has had too many problems in the past, and that responding to some of them requires a good justice system, but lamented that efforts by citizens to get justice has not been easy.

He made the statement Thursday at the Accessing Regional International Mechanisms Change for Journalists Training Forum organized by the Liberia Law Society with support from the U.S based National Endowment for Democracy (NED). The forum was held at the St. Teresa’s Convent School on Randall Street in Monrovia.

The PUL president noted that the training will help provide opportunities for journalists, human rights lawyers and civil society organizations to continue their engagements in advocating for an improved justice system in Liberia.

Also speaking at the program, former PUL president now president of the West African Journalists Association (WAJA), Peter Quaqua, denounced human rights violations in Liberia and the world at large.

Mr. Quaqua observed that the abuse of people's rights by individuals or governments is creating problems for the entire human society, and urged individual and institutional violators to desist.

The day-long training intended to train journalists on reporting human rights abuses and other court issues,  brought together a cross- section of Liberian journalists from different media entities.

Mr. Quaqua lamented that nothing has been done to properly address the cases of people whose rights have been abused over the years, noting that this continues to inflict more wounds in the minds of victims of these abuses.

He called on Liberian journalists to continue reporting human rights abuses, noting that  doing so will help enhance the country's justice system.
