Claim: “The EPS is a respecter of journalists, 95 percent of the incidence you read of the Executive Protective Service are lies.”

 

Source: Trokon Roberts- Director, Executive Director, speaking at the National Forum on Safety of Journalists in Liberia

 

Fact-check: There is no evidence on Roberts’ claim, but the Media Foundation for West Africa 2020 report states that State security agents are the principal perpetrators of violations against the media.

  • The security agents are the biggest culprits of attacks and victimization of journalists in Liberia.
  • The Press Union of Liberia also threatened to sue the security forces for brutality against Journalists.

Verdict: Misleading
