Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai Esq., who is the Director of Society for Democratic Initiative (SDI), has called on the Attorney General to declare Nolle Proseque on cases relating to criminal Libel.

According to him such will serve as an interim measure as the repeal process has taken another turn. The long term campaigner for the repeal of the criminal Libel law made that appeal recently.

He furthered that the repeal process has been a protracted process adding how the recent withdrawal of the Bill from Parliament is a continuous embarrassment to President Julius Maada Bio.

It has been noted by many media practitioners that the manner in which the Bill was withdrawn shows lack of coordination with the Executive and a deliberate attempt to stall the process. Princess Gibson, SLAJ Public Relations Officer, however stated that they are determined to see the end of the obnoxious law that is deterring media development.
