PUL, Media Heads To Convene ‘Crisis Meeting’ Monday

MONROVIA August 20 (LINA) - The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) and heads of media institutions are expected to meet at the union’s headquarters Monday to discuss the recent closure of two media institutions for non-payment of government taxes.

It can be recalled that Voice FM was shut down on July 4 and Sarafina Communications, operators of LIB-24, was also shut down on August 6 by the Liberia Telecommunications Authority through an injunction from the Civil Law Court in Monrovia due to non-registration.

A PUL release issued Saturday said the Union is asking all Managing Editors, Publishers and Radio Managers to compile tax liability documents and government's debt portfolio incurred during business transactions with the media.

It said submission of said documents will help the PUL analyze the scale of what is being presented by government and inform them in drawing up a payment where necessary.

According to the PUL release, the mass gathering of leaders of the Liberian media is intended to build a united front against “the strongest threat against the press yet since the departure of former President Charles Taylor.”

The PUL is urging all Managing Editors, Publishers and Radio Managers to attend what it terms “crisis meeting”.
