MIONROVIA-The Press Union of Liberia(PUL) has withdrawn a long running US 100,000 case  from the Civil Law Court at the Temple of Justice, concerning the  construction of the National Headquarters of Union involving some past Presidents of the PUL.

PUL President, Charles Coffey, told a News conference Friday, January 13 in Monrovia that the case was withdrawn to pave way for the construction of the PUL Headquarters as promised by his administration.

Mr. Coffey said: “The leadership will constitute committee to investigate issues surrounding the US100,000.”

In 2006, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, provided the PUL US100, 000. to construct its headquarters, but the money is yet to be accounted for by the administrations of the PUL Past Presidents,  George Barpen and Peter Quaqua.

Mr. Quaqua, in 2010 placed an injunction on the construction of the PUL Headquarters project following disagreement with the Barpen administration on the usage of the money.

Mr. Coffey also condemned the alleged flogging of Journalists Emmanuel Carphat and Danesius Marteh in Monrovia recently by some officers of the Liberia National Police. He further called on the authorities of the Police to investigate the alleged flogging of the two Journalists.
