FrontPageAfrica Editor Rodney ..., 18 Dec 2015 [cached]
FrontPageAfrica Editor Rodney Sieh, in a letter to readers published in both online and print editions said the LACC boss summoned him to a meeting in a bid to inquire how he obtained the report but he refused to reveal his sources.
At the time, FrontPageAfrica publisher Rodney D. Sieh said he was surprised the LACC chair was more concerned about finding out how the report was leaked and explained that the LACC chair never once questioned the authenticity of the report during the meeting at the LACC. The LACC chairperson statement disclaiming the report published in FPA; while at the same time disclosing that there is an ongoing investigation on how the report leaked, has been viewed by many as a major contradiction with some arguing why the LACC chair will announce investigation into how a report leaked when he had already said such report is not the work of the commission.

Rodney D. Sieh Publisher, FrontPage Africa
Rodney D. Sieh is the publisher and editor-in-chief of Liberia's biggest selling independent newspaper and website FrontPage Africa. Under Sieh's leadership FrontPage Africa has set a new standard for journalism in Liberia with groundbreaking reporting that has brought down senior government figures and exposed corruption at all levels.
In August 2013 Sieh was jailed and FrontPage Africa shutdown for failing to pay a libel verdict of $1.5m won by former Agriculture Minister Chris Toe. (Read Sieh's op-ed from jail in The New York Timeshere.) Toe sued Sieh and the paper after it published the findings of an independent audit that found $6m of ministerial funds unaccounted for. Toe was dismissed and became one of scores of government members who have been identified by the corruption watchdog and fired but never prosecuted. Despite an international outcry Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has refused to intervene and Sieh remains imprisoned.
Sieh is a veteran Liberian journalist with more than two decades experience. During the height of the civil war in Liberia, he was a senior reporter for the Monrovia Daily News, venturing on the frontlines with ECOMOG peacekeepers to report on the casualties and progress of the devastating war.
In 1992, Sieh fled Liberia for The Gambia to help his uncle Kenneth Best, a highly regarded Liberian journalist, run the independent Daily Observer.
While in The Gambia, Rodney became a correspondent for the BBC. During the 1994 coup there Sieh braved gunfire to score the first interview with the new ruler Yahyay Jammeh and his key lieutenants. In the aftermath of the coup Sieh covered a string of disappearances and mysterious killings. When Sieh's uncle Best was arrested in late September 1994, Sieh broke the news on the BBC and soon after Jammeh's forces went out in search of him, forcing him into hiding. Sieh fled to London en route to the United States. Sieh and Best are still held in high esteem by many Gambian journalists for their roles in lifting the standard of independent journalism in the country.
A graduate with honors in Media Studies from Hunter College, Sieh has worked with several U.S. newspapers including Newport News, Syracuse Post Standard and the Daily Record. He worked as an intern at the Newark Star Ledger and the Kansas City Star. At Hunter College, Sieh, was among the pilot team which launched the first online college newspaper, The Word, which many students past and present use to build their resumes and journalism credentials. Sieh, and a small dedicated team, launched in 2005 and the print edition in 2009.
