Joint Statement by UN, AU and ECOWAS on Recent Inciteful Messages in the Media


The United Nations (UN), the African Union Liaison Office in Liberia (AU) and the Office of the Special Representative of the ECOWAS Commission in Liberia (ECOWAS) note with grave concern the use of inciteful messages in the media, particularly in the social media, which has become intensified in recent weeks and days. “Liberia has taken great strides in building peace and stability. It is encouraging that the Kamara Abdullah Kamara Act of Press Freedom was recently passed by the Legislature, ensuring that all Liberians are entitled to all the protection that this new law extends,” the three multilateral organizations said in a joint statement Thursday, Feb 21. “It is important that all Liberians respect all the laws and exercise their rights freely, but always in a manner that carries responsibility towards other people and towards the nation. We shall continue to closely follow the media as well as the political climate, and remain committed to supporting the people and government of Liberia in all their endeavours for a peaceful country.
