Belarus Supreme Economic Court Confirmed: Popular Avtoradio Is Extremists

Posted by Info on 11/05/2011

Avtoradio submitted two appeals against the decision of the Supreme Economic Court. The first one concerns the warning of the Information Ministry which called ‘extremist’ pre-election advertisements of Andrei Sannikov, a presidential candidate, broadcasted by the radio station. The second one was the ruling to stop broadcasting of the popular radio station.

On March 29, 2011 Judge Dzmitry Alyaksandrau upheld the warning of the Information Ministry of Belarus and confirmed the ban on broadcasting for the radio station, despite of the fact that on March 9 the Supreme Economic Court found the ruling of the Information Ministry invalid.

At the moment the radio station does not work in fact, however its owners continue to pay utility bills, pay for the frequency, in order to maintain the legal entity. The leadership of Avtoradio is looking for the ways and possibilities to reorganize and re-channel the work of the radio station.
This year had been named the year of enterprise, and for our radio station it is held under the slogan “Try to survive!”.
