“You must check your facts balance them and ask questions when necessary to prevent misinformation being given to the public,” he stressed.

Judge Kaba made the call Friday at the inauguration of AJUR officers.

The ceremony was held in the Court “A” Conference Hall of the Temple of Justice on Capitol Hill in Monrovia where Judge Kaba spoke on the topic “The role of Journalists In Reporting on the Judiciary.”

Turning over, former President Fallah Matthews warned against malice, stating tht “Despite uncooperative character of some of you being inducted here today, we did not harbor malice against you so please do not keep malice against anyone.”  

In his induction speech AJUR President Abednego Davis acknowledged the cardinal role of journalists in the maintenance of national peace to which he sounded a wakeup call for all persons in the media.

He promised to ensure cordial working relationship with the judiciary, lauding it for the level of support it continues to render the media.

Those inducted were Abednego Davis, president; P. Nas Mulbah, Secretary; Abraham Sollie, Financial Secretary and Parnnah Mallobe, Chaplain General.
