CPJ holds Liberia responsible for Rodney Sieh's well-being
New York, August 28, 2014-The Committee to Protect Journalists is alarmed by today's hospitalization of leading Liberian independent journalist Rodney Sieh, who has been on hunger strike since his imprisonment on August 21. Sieh, the publisher of FrontPageAfrica, was taken to John Fitzgerald Kennedy Memorial Hospital Wednesday morning after vomiting and fainting in his cell at the central prison in the capital Monrovia, according to local journalists. Sieh was imprisoned and his newspaper closed down last week pending the payment of US$1.5 million in libel damages. The lawsuit relates to a FrontPageAfrica story on the findings of a government investigation that accused a former official of corruption. "We are troubled that Rodney Sieh's health has deteriorated during his imprisonment and we hold the government of Liberia responsible for his well-being," said CPJ Africa Advocacy Coordinator Mohamed Keita.
"The excessive libel damages imposed on Sieh for reporting the findings of a government inquiry on corruption, his jailing, and the closure of an important independent newspaper are a blow to press freedom and the fight against corruption in Liberia."

On behalf of the officers and members of the ULAA Council of Eminent Persons (UCEP), Inc., an organization comprising of former ULAA National Presidents and Chairmen of the National Board of Directors, call on President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and the Unity Party (UP) Government to immediately release journalist & managing editor of FrontPageAfrica, Mr. Rodney Sieh.
This is the role the managing editor, Mr. Rodney Sieh and the FrontPageAfrica newspaper has played, and continues to play in a society that is infested with malpractices.
Mr. Rodney Sieh must be set free to provide the services that the Liberian people at home and we in the Diaspora look forward to daily. The government's mutiny and calculated intimidation will only continue to expose the undemocratic and dictatorial nature of the Unity Party (UP) government to the world. Democratic government of any country is accountable to the people and the mass media serves as the means of communicating the message.
Madam President, the Liberian people are SMART! They are able to distinguish a KARTO (Paid) want-to-be journalist from the REAL STUFF. Professional journalists and reputable newspapers should be free to report the truth and not be sanctioned as you and the Unity Party government is doing to Mr. Rodney Sieh and the FrontPageAfrica newspaper.
It is in this respect; we demand the release of FrontPageAfrica's managing editor, Mr. Rodney Sieh and the re-opening of thenewspaper's office, unconditionally.

The Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of the FrontPage Africa (FPA) Newspaper, Mr. Rodney Sieh, was jailed on Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at the Monrovia Central Prison, amid public protest. Mr. Sieh, a prominent Liberian journalist, was ordered jailed by the Civil Law for failing to pay the amount of US$1,534,000.00 and L$10,500 to the former Agriculture Minister Dr. Chris Toe for Damage of Libel.
In addition, Mr. Sieh also failed to pay US$90,000 and L$6,800 as cost of the court.
Mr. Sieh persistently stated that he did not do anything wrong.
Mr. Sieh, who appeared at the Temple of Justice on late Wednesday's evening, took along with him tooth brush, toothpaste, towel etc. in readiness to be jailed.
According to our judicial reporter, the imprisonment of Journalist Sieh was occasioned by protest by his supporters on the grounds of the Temple of Justice situated on Capitol Hill, Monrovia. Supporters of the jailed Liberian journalist protested his imprisonment.
The supporters held placards with several inscriptions that read: "Freedom of the press is under attack, Leave Rodney alone, the judicial system is corrupt."
There were several prominent human rights lawyers and advocacy groups as well as heads of media institutions on the grounds of the Temple of Justice and Monrovia Central Prison in solidarity of Mr. Sieh.
Brown-Bull said the time at which Mr. Sieh was jailed was against the Liberian Constitution.
"Mr. Sieh was jailed at 6:25Pm, which is totally wrong and against the Liberian Constitution. I have nothing much to say, but I leave it with the public to judge," she added.
