PUL revising Code Of Conduct
MONROVIA, October 18 (LINA) -The Press Union of Liberia (PUL) has commenced the revision of its Code of Conduct to regulate and guide the work of local journalists
The revision, in collaboration with its international partner INTERNEWS, follows a self-regulation conference held during the union’s 52nd anniversary celebration recently.
The exercise is being done by seven professional journalists who were selected at the conference.
The Committee is working towards strengthening, restructuring, and renaming the Media Complaint Committee which is currently headed by veteran Liberian journalist Sylvester Vannie Passewee.
The Committee is asking for suggestions and input from journalists into the revision of the code of conduct.
PUL acting president Jallah Grayfield described the revision of the code as a laudable exercise, which will help address some of the ethical problems in the media ahead of the 2017 elections.
At the end of the process, a Media Council will be set up comprising professional Liberians from selected sectors of the society to serve on the council.
Those selected to review the PUL Code of Conduct are Jonathan Paye-Layleh, Patmilia Doe-Paivey, Atty. Phillip Wesseh and Winnie Saywah Jimmy.
Others are Hassan Kiawu and Calixte Hessou with Atty. Alphonsus Zeon serving as advisor, according to a PUL release.
