MONROVIA, April 9 (LINA) – The Ministry of Information wishes to clarify that the closure of the FrontPage Africa newspaper and arrest of some of its staff was not on the orders of the government of Liberia.

It said contrary to the erroneous claims that have inundated social media platforms and other news outlets on Monday, April 9, the legal suit against the entity was one of a private nature between the FPA and Henry A.K. Morgan and Moses T. Konah of the City of Monrovia.

The Government of Liberia wants to reemphasize its commitment to free press and the freedom of expression, according to a statement issued by the Information Ministry.

It recalled that during the recent transfer of UNMIL Radio to ECOWAS Radio, President George Manneh Weah again renewed this pledge and promised to resubmit the draft Act to decriminalize speech offenses so as to give media entities protection against closures and arrests in civil cases of defamation and libel.
