National Council assigned unscheduled inspection for Espresso.TV
The National council for issues of TV and radio broadcasting assigned an unscheduled inspection of the company «Goldberry» (logo «Espresso.TV»), based on referral of the license holder. The decision was approved on December 24.
The broadcaster asks the National Council to cancel the sanction of «declaring a warning», imposed on it due to violation of the requirements of part 8 of article 28 of the Law of Ukraine «On Television and Radio Broadcasting» (failure to adhere to an established program concept of broadcasting).
“These violation related to the company's activities even before it started broadcasting with the logo «Espresso.TV». After re-licensing and changing the director, the broadcaster requested the regulator to cancel this sanction”, they said in the National Council.
One more sanction was applied on December 18 for violation fo clauses 3, 5, 11, part 2 of Article 6 of the Law of Ukraine «On television and radio broadcasting», and article 28 of the Law of Ukraine «On information». Both of the requests will be considered simultaneously.
To verify the licensee's compliance with the requirements of the Ukrainian law, an additional inspection was assigned.
As IMI informed earlier, on December 18 the National council for issues of TV and radio broadcasting warned EspressoTV for live broadcasting of the Russian President Vladimir Putin's address to the Federal Assembly of Russian Federation.
