Camera group of Oleksandriyski TV-channel not allowed in local council building

18.01.2013, 09:11
 On January 17, 2013, the editor and cameraman of "Kontakt-LTD" TV-Radio company were not allowed to attend a session of the executive committee of the Oleksandria city council (the Kirovograd region), "Olexandria news" reported.

According to the newspaper, before the executive committee session, a guard pushed the TV operator out of the City Council premises. The guard was instructed by city executive committee head Volodymyr Chebotaryov, who said that, to stay in the city council building, television employees needed some "accreditation certificate."

Journalists tried to explain that the concept of accreditation has no relation to the possibility of TV to attend open meetings of city government, but everything was in vain. Other city council members were witnesses of the scene.

The Kontakt LTD editor appealed to the city police department. Police arrived on the scene and interrogated participants of the event.
