The OBSERVER Media Group has banned UPP PRO Damani Tabor from live programming “until he furnishes the company with a waiver and indemnity.”
According to Observer, “as a responsible media organisation, we reserve the right to implement these restrictions on any politician or contributor, regardless of political affiliation, that the organisation deems too risky.”
Tabor was banned from his frequent live appearances on Observer Radio one day after Prime Minister Gaston Browne sued Observer and Tabor.
The Prime Minister is seeking damages, for alleged defamatory statements about him on an OBSERVER Radio programme on January 4 by Tabor.
According to reports, the PM has requested an injunction to prevent OBSERVER Radio and Tabor from ever repeating the defamatory claims in the future.
The Prime Minister has also asked the court to stop Tabor from playing two calypsos which he alleges contains a repeat of Tabor’s words.
