Venezuela: Six Cable Channels Suspended


Venezuela: Six Cable Channels Suspended

According to information received by ARTICLE 19, at midnight on 24 January 2010, six cable television channels had their programming suspended. The Government of the Republic of Venezuela justified this oppressive measure on the basis that the channels had breached their legal obligation to broadcast official messages from the Presidency. ARTICLE 19 calls for this oppressive rule to be repealed and for the channels to be reinstated.
