VILNIUS, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Lithuania’s commission for radio and television broadcasting, which supervises the operations of radio and TV relay networks and reports to the national parliament, has suspended for three months the programming of the Russian channel NTV-mir via cable networks.
The decision to take the channel off the air was taken unanimously but it is also to be confirmed by court.
Commission chairman Edmundas Vaitekunas said that Lithuanian legislation prohibits the dissemination of data enticing the audiences to war, having a deceptive character and/or containing calls for physical reprisals targeting a group of people.
The commission’s claims against NTV-mir are linked to the airing of a documentary that discussed the events in Vilnius in January 1991, which cause heated political debates in Lithuania even now.
The country’s authorities offer a sharp reaction to any interpretations from the officially appointed one. In October 2013, First Baltic Channel was fined for airing a talk show on the same issue and was also denied access to relay broadcasting for three months.
