Rodney Sieh, publisher of FrontPage Africa said he stands by his story and that the Supreme Court ruling is intended to shut down his newspaper.
"I was kind of not surprised because we've been hearing that they were going to do this and so we were kind of anticipating it to come out. Asking us to pay $1.5 million is like telling us to shut our paper down. They will have to close down because we cannot afford to pay that money, and we insist that our story was factual," Sieh said. According to some legal analysts, FrontPage Africa can petition the Supreme Court for a re-argument of the case, but that would require the approval of one of the court's justices. Sieh said he did not appeal the lower court ruling because he believed he could get a fair hearing before the Supreme Court. "The problem is our court reporter informed us that some of the lawyers had problems because, in our Supreme Court fight, we said that we could not find a lawyer that would understand the media landscape. Mind you, no newspaper has won a case in Liberia against any government official," he said. He said he has notified the Press Union of Liberia and was in the process of notifying the Committee to Protect Journalists about the court decision. Sieh said it appears President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf's government has been encouraging its officials to sue newspapers. "In the last three, four months alone, several government officials have been suing newspapers at random, and it is becoming glaring that the administration is encouraging government officials to sue newspapers. Even if a newspaper has supporting documents and evidence to support their story, they are being sued. So, we have no other option but to keep fighting," Sieh said. Sieh said he does not have faith in the Liberian justice system. "As it stands now, we don't have confidence in the judicial system in this country because the ruling in this case was based on our experience with the Supreme Court justices last year in the Angel Tokpah case," Sieh said. The court ordered Sieh jailed for 30 days and fined for contempt in January, 2011 after an editorial he wrote criticizing the court for being biased.

Rodney Sieh has been in prison since August 21, 2013.
Dr. Toe only defense has been that he has not been indicted and prosecuted for corruption by the Ellen Johnson Sirleaf's administration, an administration that gives him the opportunity to loot the state coffers. We all know by now that the Managing Editor of Frontpageafrica, Rodney Sieh, has been jailed and his paper closed for nonpayment of a $1.5 million civil award stemming from a civil suit filed by Former Agriculture Minister Chris Toe. LIPI Condemns the Arrest and Subsequent Incarceration of Rodney Sieh The Liberian Institute for Public Integrity (LIPI), condemns in the strongest terms, the arrest and subsequent incarceration of the Publisher and Founder of Frontpage Africa Newspaper and Online Magazine, Mr. Rodney Sieh by the government of Liberia using its functionaries. 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.


Come on Bono, support free press in Liberia! - Mark Blaisse

In a heart breaking op ed in the IHT (September 2nd 2013), Rodney Sieh, editor in chief of FrontPage Africa, a newspaper that set a new standard for journalism in Africa, complains about the gap between Liberian reality and its image abroad.
Sieh was recently jailed and wrote his message from a hospital in Monrovia, where he is under armed guard, having contracted malaria in prison. Why is he behind bars? Because he has exposed corruption at the highest level in Mrs. Johnson Sirleaf's government. Corruption in which the president seems to be involved herself. The offices of FrontPage Africa had already been fire bombed in 2006 and Sieh had already spent some time in prison in 2011, due to his revealing stories. The ex-minister clearly wants the paper to shut down, with the help of judges that get secretly paid by him, according to Sieh. The court is waiting for Sieh to pay the bill, which he cannot. How long will he remain in guarded detention is a question no one can answer. It is not probable that the champion of free press and fair legal courts, the president herself, will come to his rescue. It is more than clear what she has to do: she should enact judicial reforms immediately in order for these to not only serve the elite, but ordinary Liberians as well.
