The Press Union of Liberia’s headquarters on Clay Street in Monrovia was allegedly burglarized last Monday night, resulting in losses estimated at US$2,500.
PUL Secretary General, D. Kaihenneh Sengbeh in a release circulated yesterday mentioned that two media monitoring phones, an Acer laptop, three stabilizers, two video recorders, an amplifier and 11 other items were taken away.
Police investigation has reportedly been launched into the burglary with pictures of the scene taken. The physical outlook of the area indicates that the perpetrators broke into the building through one of the bathroom windows after removing the iron bar.
Sengbeh said, “Staffs of the Union were shocked Tuesday morning when they arrived at work and observed that their offices had been burglarized and equipment were missing.”
He described the incident as worrisome and a setback to the work of the PUL. He hoped Police will promptly trace the perpetrators and retrieve the stolen items.
