CHISINAU, April 5 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moldovan television channel NIT, which supported the opposition Communist Party, was stripped of a broadcasting license. The Moldovan coordination council of television and radio broadcasting has made the decision to this effect on Thursday.
“The television channel was stripped of the broadcasting license for a biased position during the election campaign for the elections to local authorities. NIT constantly showed the inclination to support only one party – the Communists in terms of a total volume of the air time and the positive keynote to them,” the coordination council said in a statement.
The private TV channel NIT is one of few channels in the republic that broadcasts in Russian to all big cities in the country. The TV channel already stated that they intend to challenge the decision to revoke the channel’s license in the court.
