Bahrain 'may ban some TV channels'
Manama, April 25, 2014
Bahrain may ban some satellite TV channels, following recommendation from the High Authority for Information and Communication, a report said.
The High Authority for Information and Communication has recommended stopping the broadcasting of these channels based in Bahrain due to their violation of the kingdom's laws in the stories covered, and failure to commit to the sovereignty and legal norms, said the report in the Gulf Daily News.
The panel also recommended the immediate setting up of a high investigation committee to inquire into licences granted to these channels and to determine whether they were given according to the law, it said.
