In Solidarity with Press Freedom in Liberia: We Stand with FrontpageAfrica’s Editor

Editor Sieh in court with pillow as he prepared to go to prison

In solidarity with the unjustifiable imprisonment of the FrontpagAfrica’s Editor on a case in which by all legal standard other than jungle justice, would had been thrown out of any court room, we stand with FrontpageAfrica and press freedom in Liberia”.
