The Media Institute of Southern Africa -MISA Lesotho says it demands the High Court of Lesotho to declare the State of Emergency null and void.

The deputy Chairperson of MISA Lesotho Mr. Kananelo Boloetse says the business of the 10th Parliament conducted following declaration of State of Emergency and recall of the parliament were not done in the perimeters of the constitution.

Boloetse said MISA Lesotho does not support the issue of the state of emergency as well as the recall of the parliament.

He said they are disappointed with how the Minister of Law and Justice, Advocate Lekhetho Rakuoane handled media issues in the reform process.

He said amongst others, all the amendments that were proposed which included the establishment of the media ombudsman and media council, were rejected.
