(April 11, 2019, Monrovia)- The Press Union of Liberia is once more pleased to release its Media Alert Report.

The report, covers the period between January and March of 2019. It is the eighth in a series of published reports since the birth of the Media Alert Office in April 2017.

The Media Alert Reports, as usual, take into consideration issues of attack on journalists and media institutions across Liberia.

The Alert Reports also highlight other major issues, including critical analysis of the trend being taken by Liberia’s media environment, taking into consideration the nature of space being offered by state actors for the media to function.

The current Alert Report of the Press Union of Liberia shares light on attacks and lawsuits against the media by individuals in the public and private sectors.

The Eighth Quarterly Report contains five attacks and two lawsuits.

The Alert Office was set up in 2017 by the PUL, in collaboration with Internews/USIAD, as part of the Media Development Program.

The Press Union of Liberia is calling on the journalism community to help publicize these Alert Reports as the documentations are intended to build notoriety in the public around the characters of people who found it pleasing to attack journalists.

Secretary General
