PUL Wants Dialogue Over Media Indebtedness
By Robert Dixon

MONROVIA, August 22 (LINA) – The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) has expressed readiness to dialogue with the government concerning tax payment by media institutions and enforcement of regulations.

“If the government is sincere about ensuring compliance with the laws and regulations, the Press Union is available to join this conversation,” PUL President Kamara A. Kamara has said.

Speaking at a meeting of media executives at the Union’s Headquarters on Clay Street in Monrovia on Monday, Kamara noted that the government is the largest player in the economy and the biggest debtor of media services.

He claimed that this scenario places the government under a moral obligation to evaluate its relations with the media in terms of resuscitating the difficult economic environment in which the media operates.

It can be recalled that the Civil Law Court recently ordered the closure of Sarafina Ventures and Communications Inc. (Love FM and Television) and LIB 24 Radio based on a petition for preliminary injunction growing out of a petition for declaratory judgment filed by the Liberia Telecommunication Authority.

The Ministry of Information in a press release said the closure of the institution is predicated upon the fact that Sarafina Ventures has not regularized its status nor pay its license fees for over five years.
