The Liberian government has appealed against the decision of Civil Law Court to restore the broadcast license of Punch FM after the station filed for a declarative judgment.
Heads of prominent foreign missions in Monrovia, including the United States, ECOWAS, E.U., and the U.N., have called on the government to employ transparency in the process of issuing permits for large street demonstrations in Liberia.
The Press Union of Liberia has called upon authorities of the Liberia Telecommunications Authority to retain its current annual FM regulatory policy, instead of hastily introducing a new five-year regime.
On Tuesday, Jan. 7, Judge Peter Gbenewelleh of Civil Law Court B dealt a major blow to the government in a case filed by the management of Punch FM 106.3, in which the government continues to deny the issuing the stationâ€™s operating license. The judge ruled in a declaratory judgment that the government must immediately issue Punch FMâ€™s license. Â
