Church fights radio ban CATHOLIC leaders in Liberia filed a lawsuit against the government last week for banning the Church-run Radio Veritas from broadcasting.
In July, the government
informed the radio station that its authorisation to broadcast on shortwave frequencies had been withdrawn. The move left Radio Liberia, a station sympathetic to the government of President Charles Taylor, as the only news station that can be received in the West African nation. Taylor upheld the ban last week, telling journalists there would be no other shortwave stations in the country. The Church Lawsuit accuses the government of violating Liberia's constitution.
Radio Veritas was briefly shut down by the government last year on the grounds that it was "preaching filth to the public about the government"
