PUL Members Lift Suspension On Veep

The highest decision making body of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) have with immediate effect lifted the suspension of Vice president, Octavian Williams.
Mr. Williams was suspended by his colleagues last December for what they termed as an act inimical to the PUL ethics.
The suspension was lifted during a mass meeting by the membership at the headquarters of the Union yesterday, October 8, following a communication from Mr. Williams imploring for reconciliation with the entire membership.
In his communication to the Union Mr. Williams said he has also withdrawn a lawsuit issued against the PUL when he was suspended stating, “I have realized that our role as watch dogs of society and the mandate to uphold press freedom and free speech cannot be actualized with a divided house.”
Mr. Williams was suspended along with Information Minister Eugene Nagbe but Minister Nagbe’s suspension was lifted following an apology in less than two weeks. Minister Nagbe appearing on FABRIC Radio described the Union as a useless fraternity, a statement the union termed as unwelcoming while the PUL Vice president made public his descending view on actions the leadership vowed to be meted against the Minister.
Meanwhile, the leadership of the PUL has been mandated to institute further actions aimed at curtailing hate speech, invectives and profanities on some Media institutions in the Country.
The PUL leadership has been urged to collaborate with the National Legislature and other relevant State institutions in proffering legislation and policy that will enable the PUL by law to compel all Media institutions to conform to Journalistic Principles, PUL Code of Ethics and Societal Norms.
The PUL membership decision was as a result of a unanimous vote reaffirming the leadership recent statement against hate speech and invectives and earlier frowned on both Freedom F.M and Roots F.M as unwarranted, unbecoming and total disregard to ethical standards and societal norms.
The membership maintained if nothing is done to remedy the increasing wave of invectives and profanities in the Media, the consequences may lead to the case of Rwanda.
PUL’s members also declared Roots FM and Freedom as Hate Speech institutions. The two media institutions’ reporters who have gone to cover the meeting were disallowed by Charles Coffey.
