  1. TV channels ban?

    Posted on Friday, April 25, 2014

    MANAMA: Some satellite TV channels could be banned in Bahrain. This follows media reports about some offensive channels. The High Authority for Information and Communication has recommended stopping the broadcasting of these channels based in Bahrain due to their violation of the kingdom’s laws in the stories covered, and failure to commit to the sovereignty and legal norms.

    The panel also recommended the immediate setting up of a high investigation committee to inquire into licences granted to these channels and to determine whether they were given according to the law.
